The Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana is said to have taken delivery of its newly imported Biometric Verification Machine (BVM) and other machines to enable them carry out its intended new voter’s registration exercise schedule to start on 30th June, 2020.
According to a letter cited by this reporter which was written and signed by the Deputy Commissioner in – charge of Corporate Services, Dr Bossman Asare, the EC has scheduled Thursday, 18th June, 2020 to test its new BVM and other machines ahead of the June 30th nationwide registration exercise.
Portion of the letter written to the various political parties inviting them to participate in the exercise reads “the Commission is desirous of furthering testing the kits and operating system. As key stakeholders in our nation’s development we hope that you will participate in this exercise.
We hope to receive your constructive feedback as this may help strengthen our processes”
Even though, date and time has been given, the venue for the exercise is yet to be made known to the political parties.
The letter was also requesting the political parties to present ten (10) people to go through the testing exercise.
