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.

According to the report, 27,500 were interviewed across the 16 regions.

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
3. To get a credible register

Randomly, let me pick two only two regions results:

In the Volta region
1800were polled
54% were for yes
45% were for no

Ashanti Region
4707 were polled
74.2% were for yes
25% were for no

Margin of error for the entire exercise was 1%
