BVR Progressing Steadily (Daily Graphic)
The process of de-duplication, the identification and weeding out of duplicate or multiple registrations is the crux of the biometric voters registration process to ensure that we have a credible and reliable voters register.
In the face of many challenges and an extremely short time to implementation, the independent National Electoral Commission has demonstrated its commitment, progressive forward-thinking vision and is fulfilling its objective of acting on behalf of and in the best interest of the people.
In return, a grateful nation has embraced and supported the process and with this type of commitment, the voter registration exercise can already be declared a huge success – which bodes well for the upcoming crucial December parliamentary and presidential elections. Well done, Ghana!
Soaring temperatures, long queues and overwhelming technology coupled with people’s frustrations and irritations would normally be a powder keg waiting to explode as the exercise began on Saturday, March 24.
But not so in Ghana. While some countries across the African continent face civil war, coup d'état and the Arab spring, Ghana continues to demonstrate its democratic maturity and insight.
