7 EC Voters Kits Allegedly Stolen – NDC

The Minority in Parliament is alleging seven biometric devices of the Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana have been stolen.

This was revealed by the Minority Leader, Cassiel Atto Forson on Tuesday, March 19, 2024.

According to him, the EC has confirmed the news as true following a scheduled meeting with some legislators.

“Seven machines the EC uses to register Ghanaians into the electoral roll and also at the same time uses to verify us before you vote are missing. Seven of them are missing.

“So I was a bit curious about the matter and decided not to bring it out because we are to have a meeting with the Electoral Commission but I could not attend that meeting but obviously, my deputy working with the Chief Whips, were at the meeting. The Electoral Commission confirmed that seven of the biometric devices are indeed missing.”

Expressing concern about the development, he called on the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and the Ghana Police Service to publish the report of their investigations on the theft.

“I am concerned and worried because those devices in the hands of unknown persons may compromise the future elections Ghana will have. Who knows whether this is in the hands of a political party and who knows what that political party is doing with it.”

This comes ahead of the May 7 limited voters registration exercise.
