Source: citifmonline.com - Private legal practitioner, John Ndebugri, has challenged members of the Let My Vote Count Alliance pressure group to proceed to the court if they feel the current voters’ register is flawed
.
According to Ndebugri, the Constitution specifies procedures in handling such issues explaining that such persons mounting pressure on the Electoral Commission should stop.
The Let My Vote Count Alliance, after picketing to demand a new voters register, have also visited former president John Rawlings and John Kufuor to seek their view on the matter.

The pro-opposition group claimed that evidence presented by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) suggests that the current voter register is bloated with names of foreigners and minors hence a new one must be compiled before the 2016 general elections.

But, speaking on Citi FM’s news analysis programme, The Big Issue, John Ndebugri argued that such demands stampede the work of the EC.

He added that the former presidents do not have the mandate to call for a new register.

“After the voter’s register was compiled, it was published in the gazette. So it is prima facie valid until evidence is led to prove that it is not. That evidence is not led in the house of former president Rawlings, or Kufuor or in the meeting room of some group calling itself Let My Vote Count and so on. It is determined in court.”

Ndebugri maintained that “those challenging the authenticity of the register should go to court with credible evidence to show that the register is flawed and when there is a judicial pronouncement on it then we can proceed.”

“If they are not minded to do that, they should allow the Electoral Commission to do its work,” he stressed.
