The New Juaben Municipality recorded over 36,000 registrations during the first phase of the biometric registration exercise which ended on Monday.

Ms Lydia Agyiri, Municipal Electoral Officer, disclosed this to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in an interview in Koforidua, on Tuesday.

She said the ten -day exercise was successful except for a few technical hitches, which were experienced in some areas but were later solved.

Ms Agyiri commended the political parties, especially the two major parties, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for cooperating with the Electoral Commission (EC).

She however expressed concern about the way and manner the two parties sometimes engaged each other in confrontations when misunderstanding ensued between them at the registration centres.

Ms Agyiri appealed to the two parties to use the electoral process to iron out their differences as far as the exercise is concerned to make the remaining thirty days successful.
