“We don’t have a certified register and we have three months to go into the election. We should have finished some of the processes by September. I can assure you on the floor that I will not vouch for November, ” O.B Amoah stated on Eyewitness News.
Submit new timetable to Parliament
O.B Amoah further tasked the Commission to submit a new timetable to Parliament for the conduct of the November 7 elections.
This, he believes will assure the House that the Commission is ready to conduct elections on November 7 instead of December 7.

He was however quick to remind the EC to consider the law in producing a new calendar.
“They [EC] are promising that by tomorrow they will produce the calendar but we also need to look at the law. For instance when it comes to proxy voting, special voting, transfer of votes, we should be able to do it 42 days before the elections. When it comes to continuous registration, if you register less than 60 days before elections, your name will be on the register but you can’t vote…”
