Registration of Voters’ ID: EC to Send Officials to High Schools to Register Final Year Students

The Commission said its officials are stationed in the schools to register students of the last year, with effect from Friday, 10 July 2020.

This was announced at an earlier meeting of the Inter-Party Consultative Committee (IPAC).

The EC launched the electoral registration exercise for the general elections in 2020 last Tuesday.

Registration will be performed at 6,788 clusters, consisting of five registration centers throughout the world.

EC chairman Jean Mensa reported earlier this week that more than 2.2 million Ghanaians have been registered in the country by the Commission so far.

In addition, the EC has also surpassed its goals, she said during the first phase of the ongoing registration of voters.

Meanwhile, it is bound to draw criticism from the decision of the Committee to extend the registration to secondary schools, a segment of the public already calling for a closure of schools following the COVID-19 pandemic.

In recent weeks, a variety of COVID-19 worries have followed in different educational institutions.

The Accra University was the first to report a case after the virus had been contracted by a National Service Staff.

The Ghana Education Center also announced on Tuesday that the Accra girls’ SHS have scored positively on COVID-19 for six candidates, as well as a teacher and a spouse.

Nine Mpraeso Senior High School students were also isolated and await their results, despite concerns about COVID 19 infections continue to increase.
