The New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ashanti Region has said it will, in conjunction with other pro-opposition groups hit the streets of Kumasi in protest against the voters' register ahead of the November polls.

“We shall flood Kumasi with people who want to see free, fair and credible elections done in Ghana,” the NPP parliamentary nominee for Asawase, Alhaji Alidu Seidu made this known at a press conference on Wednesday.

According to him, the alleged flaws in the voters' register pose danger for the country's democracy.

“Ghana is in crisis. Our democracy is in danger. If we don't wake up, stand up and fight off those who seek to destroy our democracy, we end up with no Ghana to call our home,” he added.

Pro-NPP pressure group, 'Let My Vote Count Alliance' held a huge protest last year to drum home the need for a new voters' register.

A five-member panel was later set up by the Electoral Commission to conduct public hearings over the demands for a new voter register.

But, the EC, in a response said the committee "finds the arguments for a new register unconvincing and therefore does not recommend the replacement of the current voters’ register."
