Inter-Party Resistance Against New Voter Register and led by main opposition NDC is against the compilation of a new voter’s register ahead of the 2020 elections.
IPRNA is mainly made up of opposition parties including; National Democratic Congress (NDC), All People’s Congress (APC) and People’s National Convention (PNC).
They embarked on the demonstration to protest the EC’s decision to compile a new voters’ register for the 2020 general elections.
The group insists a new register is a waste of taxpayers’ money and could also create tension since the election is close.
The group is unconvinced by the EC’s defense for the creation of a new register.
