The Director of Research and Elections for the party, Evans Nimako told Accra based Citi TV that the figure is from NPP’s own collation of the number of voters’ captured in the ongoing exercise.
“I think day one and day two, what we have seen so far is encouraging, however, I am not too surprised by the position of Peter Boamah Otukunor [who was also on The Point of View]. This is a program they never supported. I’m surprised that as of now, checking from our database, we are having almost five hundred and twenty thousand people registered.”
Meanwhile, the Electoral Commission’s Office in the Volta Region has disclosed that 19,513 persons successfully registered on the first day of the new voter’s registration exercise ongoing in the Volta region.
