The NPP have recently made allegations that Ghana’s current voters’ register is bloated with names of foreign nationals.

The party has since petitioned the EC with information available to them and are demanding a new register.

Speaking in an interview on Accra-based Citi Fm, Nana Addo said the new Electoral Commissioner "should maintain an open mind and at the same time find a way to hasty the process in making a decision".

He further believed the sooner a decision is made on the voters register, the sooner the country can be prepared for the 2016 elections.

Pressure is still mounting on the Electoral Commission on the subject of the need for a new voters' register.

Ms. Charlotte Osei had earlier on revealed that so far, 30 institutions including 15 political parties, have submitted proposals which are being evaluated on whether or not there would be need for a new voters’ register.

She further stated that the EC has received donor support to evaluate the proposals and that by the end of the month; they will organize a forum to discuss and reach some consensus on the proposals.
