On August 18, 2015, the largest opposition party in Ghana, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), held a press conference in Accra to claim that the current voter register was flawed. At the same event, the NPP also demanded a complete replacement of the current voter register before the next general elections. Primarily, the NPP alleged that the register contained persons not qualified (including non-Ghanaians) to register and vote, in Ghana. The party subsequently followed
up their allegations with evidence and a petition to the Electoral Commission (EC).
