NDC, others hit Kumasi streets with ‘Yenpini’ demo against voters’ register [watch]

After its first demonstration held against Electoral Commission’s quest for the compilation of a new voters’ register, the Inter-Party Resistance Against New Voters’ Register Coalition continues its second demonstration Tuesday, January 21.

The Coalition led by the National Democratic Congress (NDC), says there is no need for the compilation of a new register as the current voters’ register is fit for use in the 2020 parliamentary and presidential elections and not obsolete as claimed by the EC.
