The Inter-Party Resistance against a New Voters' Register has rejected the research by the University of Ghana Political Science department which says that 64.9% of Ghanaians want a new voters' register for the 2020 general elections.
The group which staged its third demonstration yesterday believe the findings of the research are biased and without merit.
According to them, the findings was conducted only on Akufo-Addo's appointees, that is Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) whose ''political party is all out for a new voters register.'' Adding the research was not conducted on ordinary Ghanaians to have their responses as well.
Speaking to Starr FM today, Chairman of the group Bernard Monah described the findings of new Voters Register for the 2020 elections by the University as bogus
Mr Monah added that the findings are not worth considerable by any member within the Interparty Resistance against the New Voters' Register
