A survey conducted by the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana has suggested that six out of 10 Ghanaians are in favour of new voters register for the 2020 elections.

According to the department, many of the respondents believe a new register will ensure the credibility of the polls.

The survey comes in the wake of the standoff between some political parties and the electoral commission over attempt by the commission to create a new register

Below is a breakdown of the statistics

The reason given by the respondent for w new register are as follows:

1. To remove deceased names
2. To detect foreign names
