Mim Gyaasehene urges new and unregistered voters to participate in Limited Voter Registration Exercise
Nana Agyapong Beedu Brobbey, the Gyaasehene of Mim, has made a passionate plea to the newly turned 18-year-olds and adults in Mim who have not yet registered as voters.
His call to action comes in the midst of the Limited Voter Registration Exercise, which commenced on September 12 and is currently underway at all Electoral Commission (EC) district offices across Ghana.
According to Nana Brobbey, Mim situated in the Ahafo Region, is in need of district and constituency representation.
He has heard rumors that the Electoral Commission (EC) may create new constituencies ahead of the 2024 elections, and he sees this as a unique opportunity for Mim to secure its own constituency.
Given the high population of Mim within the Ahafo Region, increasing voter registration could influence the EC’s decision in favor of Mim.
An increased voter turnout in Mim can be a catalyst for the creation of a new constituency.
He added that in Ghana, constituencies are delineated based on population size and geographical considerations. By bolstering the number of registered voters, Mim can demonstrate its readiness for independent representation in the national legislature.
Nana Brobbey further urged community members to assist qualified voters, particularly in terms of transportation to the registration centers.
Nana Agyapong Beedu Brobbey’s advocacy for increased voter registration in Mim and the potential creation of a new constituency is a testament to his dedication to democratic values and fair representation. His call for community support in aiding qualified voters underlines the importance of collective engagement in the democratic process. As the Limited Voter Registration Exercise continues, it is an opportune moment for the people of Mim to actively participate, shape their political destiny, and contribute to the democratic fabric of Ghana.
