The Deputy Chairman of Operations of the Electoral Commission (EC), Samuel Tettey has refuted claims that the Commission registered people in secret.

The response comes after Election Watch Ghana alleged that the EC used stolen biometric kits to secretly register people in certain areas.

Speaking at a press conference at the Electoral Commission headquarters, Mr Tetteh stated that these allegations are “useless” and ‘without merit.’

According to the director of operations, a biometric registration kit comprises several components that must be activated together to register voters.

Mr. Tettey stated that the limited voter registration process allows political party agents, accredited observer groups, and media personnel to monitor the activities of the various registration centers, ensuring transparency.

He stated that all political party agents also receive daily start and end reports to cross-check against their records, further disproving allegations of secret registration.
