Only NDC, NPP agents seen at ongoing biometric voter registration centres
The two leading political parties, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) appear to be leaving nothing to chance as they keep close watch of the on-going biometric voter registration.
They have their agents present at all the registration centres in the Ashanti Region, observing the process and added to this, are special monitoring teams to enable them to have clear grasp of what is happening on the ground.
The Ghana News Agency (GNA) did not come across any party agents of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), People’s National Convention (PNC), Progressive Peoples Party (PPP), Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP) and the United Front Party (UP) at all centres visited on day one of the exercise.
Compilation of the new biometric voters roll had been generally peaceful in the region with no reported nasty incident with the only problem being with the malfunctioning of some registration equipment in the early hours of the exercise.
Turnout was impressive at many of the centres with long queues formed long before the official start of the registration.
