A number of Civil Society Organizations(CSOs) have outlined the reasons the various groups’ are emphatically opposing the new biometric voter system.

The CSOs, totaling 18 CSOs operating in Ghana, strongly argues against the new biometric voter system.

There’s been series of arguments since the EC announced its intent months ago.

According to the group, the Electoral Commission of Ghana (EC) wants to rip out a system worth $60 million, of which value at least $40 million accumulated since just 2016.

This new biometric system, according to the group will amount to spend $150 million (plus contingency).

IMANI in a report has said a careful analysis of best practices in procuring biometric technology for elections in Africa shows that the EC’s proposed spending plans are inflated by about 60 per cent.

The argument is that the EC’s proposed system is brutally expensive compared to other countries in Africa.

In the brief paper below, IMANI, as a member of this broad grouping, has laid out the key reasons for the inability of major governance and policy think tanks in this country to support the EC’s latest adventure.
