Ghana’s Electoral Commission has said it will go ahead with the new voter registration exercises despite the outbreak of COVID-19 in the country.
To prevent the spread of the disease as the country has recorded seven confirmed cases, the government has placed a ban on all social gatherings.
Large gatherings of more than 25 people have been discouraged but the EC says plans are advanced for the successful take-off of the registration process.
The EC in a statement, however, said due to the ban on public gathering, it will announce a new date for the registration in due course.
The EC stated that it is taking the necessary steps to guaranty the safety of Ghanaians and safeguard them from COVID-19 during the exercise.
