The Youth Bridge Foundation would like to bring to the attention of the Electoral Commission, political parties and the general public that the parliamentary by-election in the Assin North constituency slated for June 27, 2023 will amount to a breach of the 1992 constitution if held without the inclusion of youth who turned 18 after 2020 election.
It is on record that the Electoral Commission has not conducted any fresh or continuous voter registration exercise since the nationwide registration held from June to August 2020. Since this exercise, a significant number of young people have turned the legal voting age of 18 years and the EC will be neglecting its duties if it fails to enfranchise these voters.
