Kenneth Kuranchie, National President of the Coalition for Free, Fair and Transparent Elections (COFFTRE), says that the Electoral Commission (EC) has failed to address issues that emerged after the 2012 elections.

According to him, there were many urgent unresolved issues after the 2012 elections.

Mr. Kuranchie, who is also the editor of the Daily Searchlight, said the situation was dangerous for the country since the country was heading towards another crucial election.

The COFFTRE National President, who was addressed members of the group during a night vigil to buttress calls for a new voters’ register, said the EC must change the current voters’ register.

He stated that Mrs. Charlotte Osei, the EC boss must address the grievances of all aggrieved persons.

The Daily Searchlight Editor disclosed that COFFTRE would roll out other programms to mount pressure on the EC boss if she remained adamant after the prayers by the group.

Mr. Freddie Blay, the National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), in a message read on his behalf by Evans Nimako, said the party was in support of the group’s demand for a new voters’ register.

Rt. Rev. Frank Addai Aboagye, a representative of the Committed Clergy Association of Ghana, chided politicians over their intransigence over the issue.

Other speakers including the Volta Caucus, the Truth and Accountability Forum, all demanded a new voters’ register.
