Pilot biometric registration exercise conducted in the Western Region


Takoradi, Mar. 16, GNA – Mr Steve Opoku-Mensah, the Western Regional Electoral Director, has said the pilot biometric registration process was successful.

He said two polling centres were selected for the exercise in the Region with one each at Mpohor Police Station and Kwesimintsim Catholic Junior High School in the Kwesimintsim constituency.

Mr Opoku-Mensah told the Ghana News Agency that a total of 101 persons were registered with 50 in Mpohor and 51 in Kwesimintsim constituencies.

The pilot registration process which was organised last Saturday March 12, was meant to test the readiness and effectiveness of the EC’s biometric machines and other registration kits for the November elections.

He said the representatives of the National Democratic Congress, the New Patriotic Party and the Progressive People’s Party were at the two polling centres to observe the exercise while the police provided security.
