The Director of Electoral Service, Dr. Serebour Quarcoe at the Electoral Commission (EC) has disclosed in an interview with Citi News which was monitored by Apexnewsgh.com that the commission wants to reduce the queuing at the polling stations.
According to Dr. Quarcoe, the Commission had decided to put the threshold at 749. He said any center that is more than that will be split.
“…so, there are some centers that have been split into five. Some are four, three, and two. The splitting has created about 5,000 plus centers. So, there are no new centers. The splitting is around the whole country but mostly in areas that are densely populated,” he stated.
However, the newly added polls have seen the number of polling stations ballooned to 38,000 polling stations across the country.
Meanwhile, the Chairperson of the Commission, Jean Mensa has assured Parliament that her outfit is 95 percent ready for the successful, credible, fair, and peaceful conduct of the election on December 7, 2020.
Following the misconception in the public domain that she disrespected the house by not honoring their earlier invitation, Madam Jean Mensa said, It is important to emphasize that this is the first time she has been invited by the House in her capacity as the EC Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, and she has on no occasion turned down an invitation from the Parliament of Ghana.
