Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu has appealed to the Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Michael Oquaye to direct the chair of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensah to brief the House on the ongoing limited registration exercise.

According to the Minority Leader, as representatives of the people they need to be briefed on the challenges on the ongoing exercise.

“In my constituency, there are shortages of forms. There is confusion between online and offline and there is an upcoming District Assemble election as representatives of the people, the right vote must not be in a denial. If you can direct that the EC chair appears before this House we are major stakeholders, we need to know the road map”, he appealed.

Leader of Government Business and Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu on his part noted that the issue was raised at the Business Committee meeting.

“I strongly suggested to the Minority Leader that the committee does not generate its own agenda, if he has an issue he should apply to the Speaker, if the Speaker agrees then we have to do that”, he said on the floor answering questions after presentation of the Business Statement”.

He noted that until then, there is nothing before the Business Committee to invite the EC until the invitation is granted, “We should do the needful but now there is nothing before the committee”.
