Members of the Let My Vote Count Alliance (LMVCA) have rescheduled their second demonstration from Tuesday to September 29, 2015.

The change in date follows negotiations with the police. The demonstrators are demanding a new voter's register, with a claim that the old one is bloated.

A demonstration in Accra last week turned bloody, with scores of the members getting injured.

Some of the protestors were also arrested and charged.

The police accused them of attempting to march to the Electoral Commission’s headquarters in contravention of a court injunction.

Convener David Asante Boateng told journalists in Accra  that they will still march to the EC on the new date.

Next week’s protest according to the group is also to honour all those whose human rights were abused by the police last Wednesday.

“We will demonstrate against State violence. We will march for Justice for Justice Adzakumah, the young man whose tragedy symbolised the police atrocities of September 16.

“We the people of Ghana refuse to be intimidated and silenced by state violence. They may mock us and add insults to the injuries they inflict on us. But we shall stand up for what is right and just”, the group said.
