Mop Up Registration of SHS Students By EC
The Electoral Commission of Ghana is the official body in Ghana responsible for all public elections. Made up of seven members, its independence is guaranteed by the 1992 Ghana constitution.
The current commission was established by the Electoral Commission Act (Act 451) of 1993. Kwadwo Afari-Gyan was the first substantive Chairman of the Commission from 1993-2015.
On December 5, 2018, the Electoral commission chaired by Jean Adukwei Mensah reverted to the old logo Eagles with coat of arms after the controversy over the new logo.
In keeping with its promise, the Electoral Commission (EC) has arranged to do a mop up registration in all SHS/TVETS.
The exercise covers SHS/TVETS without registration centres across the country to register eligible students tomorrow Saturday 18th July 2020.
This arrangement has been made to enable eligible students who could not be registered on the 10th and 11th of July, have an opportunity to register during this second phase.
It is in light of this that the management of Ghana Education Service (GES) has cautioned the general public especially political party representatives.
GES has asked political representatives who would be assigned by their parties that the schools should not be used as a place for partisan politicking.
GES further urged all who will take part in the registration exercise to strictly comply with the COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
