George Loh, a Communication team member of the ruling party, National Democratic Congress (NDC), who doubles as a legal practitioner has called on ‘political quantity surveyors’ to desist from attacking the Electoral Commission (EC).
Mr Loh, speaking yesterday at the TV3’s morning flagship programme ‘New Day’, said, “we will not have a perfect voters register, explaining that, we are chasing the wind if we are looking for a perfect voters register”.
Mr Loh said, “The public must not chase the EC for perfect voters register rather we all have to, come together as people and tell ourselves we need a data base to document the people of the country”.
According to Mr Loh, the public must leave the EC to manage its own affairs without any external interferes. He added.
“Whether we like it or not, we will not have a perfect voters register, adding that, there is a tendency that 1,000 or more registrants has pass on”.
Mr Loh, who lost the NDC parliamentary primaries to the 27-year old, final year law student at University of Cape Coast said, “The public should let EC to deal with its own issue”. He added.
He further explain, it is good to have one National ID that contains all necessary National ID information such as voters ID, National Health, SSNIT card and ATM.
However, Loh said, it is not overstatement to have one National ID with all information but it doesn’t guarantee credible voters register.
Meanwhile, it is a key to National Development, where the government can identify unemployment rate and potential human resources in the country. He noted.
