Last Friday, the Electoral Commission issued a statement, signed by Christian Owusu Parry, Acting Director of Public Affairs, and named members of the panel to include Justice V.C.R.A.C. Crabbe, who chairs the panel, and Dr. Nii Narku Quaynor.
Questions are being raised about the neutrality of these two personalities in handling the controversial issues surrounding the voters’ register.
