The NDC reported to the EC that thier party’s attention has been drawn to the fact that the EC has ordered that all the biometric devices used in the presidential and parliamentary elections should be deactivated.
They showed their disagreement with the order in a press release as they termed the act as illegal
But Dr Asare said every information relating to this year’s election was intact.
He said the EC would decide on the exact time to destroy any such information based on the law.
The Vice-Chairman of the EC explained that the deactivation of the BVDs was part of the standard operation procedures which were supposed to happen at the end of polls.
“It prevents the possible mischief of additional verification being done after polls have closed. Deactivation does not in any way delete the verification data that are on the BVDs,” he stressed.
