A Systems Analyst Arnold Appiah and Data Intelligence Professional Jibreal Agbesi Hamenoo are calling on the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to challenge the technical basis of the announced de-duplication exercise of the Electoral Commission.
The exercise according to the Electoral Commission is intended to expunge the names of persons who have registered more than once during the ongoing registration exercise.
The EC said the exercise has been necessitated by the detection of several cases of multiple registration in the data gathered thus far.
A Systems Analyst based in the US Arnold Appiah however says the claim by the EC is troubling.
According to him the announcement by the EC suggests they are undertaking a manual exercise to delete persons who have registered multiple times.
He told Sena Nombo on the Pro-Forum Hour, the announcement by the EC raises key queries about the quality of the much touted “superior” biometric system of the Jean Mensah led EC.
Arnold Appiah argues that a proper biometric system should be able to automatically correct this anomaly without human interference.
He said allowing the system to work will ensure that each registrant will be captured once.
A Data Intelligence Architect also based in the US Jibreal Agbesi Hamenoo told Sena Nombo on the same platform, the EC’s claim is a subtle lie.
He said the uniqueness of the fingerprint system should make it difficult for any person to register on multiple occasions.
Jibreal Agbesi Hamenoo also wondered the impact of the “facial recognition” feature the EC claims is embedded in the system.
