A group calling itself New Patriotic Party (NPP) grassroots says it is ready to counter the demonstrations to be organised by the various political parties in protest against the new register.
The group said the reasons given by the Electoral Commission (EC) for the compilation of a new register are justified hence every Ghanaian should support them.
National Secretary of the group, Michael Okyere told Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5fm that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the other political parties staging a protest against the register is an evil agenda.
He said the group is ready to organise demonstrations to counter any of the planned demonstrations by the opposition NDC.
He claims the parties that are protesting against the new register are only five whereas more than 20 political parties have supported the call for a new register.
He said the NDC is preparing the grounds for them to reject the results should they lose ”and that is what we want to stand up against. Ghana has made gains democratically, and that is something we want to protect. We cannot allow only a few people to hold this nation to ransom”.
