The lawmaker argued that a new register for the election will ensure there is less pressure on the EC and ensure fairness in the upcoming polls.

The MP who doubles as the Minister for Parliamentary Affairs said the main opposition party, NDC, is on a destructive mission to demonise the current EC and cause instability in the country.

He said he is very shocked the NDC made a sudden U-turn to campaign against the EC's decision to compile a new voters register, adding that the NDC is deliberately sabotaging and frustrating the work of the election management body.

"I'm very surprised the NDC and other members of the opposition are raising a red flag with EC’s to compile a new register, we had a meeting in Parliament in which members of the minority agreed with EC’s decision to conduct a new register so am shocked with the sudden u-turn," he noted.

Parliament has already approved GH¢444,846,663 for the compilation of a new voters register which it believes will be more credible and efficient than the existing one.
