As the fourth phase of biometric voters registration exercise begins tomorrow Thursday 26th April 2012, the Member of Parliament for Asuogyaman, Rev. Dr. Joses Asare-Akoto has urged his constituents to continue to remain disciplined to ensure the success of the exercise.

According to him, the registration exercise in the constituency since its inception on 24th March 2012 has been generally peaceful as no electoral malpractices have been recorded due to the maturity exhibited by the constituents.

The fourth phase which is the final stage of the registration exercise is expected to be well patronized by the public who are yet to register as the Electoral Commission has not yet served any notice of extending the closing date.

Speaking to ghanamps.gov.gh, Hon. Rev. Dr Joses Asare-Akoto stated that the initially long queues that characterized the first few days of the registration exercise was due to the lack of adequate information by officials of the Electoral Commission(EC) on the exercise.

He admonished persons who are yet to register to take advantage of the last phase to get their data captured by the EC to enable them exercise their franchise in the upcoming December general election which is widely expected to be keenly contested.
