EC Agrees On Manual Voter Verification Ahead Of 2016 Elections

The electoral commission has, at an Inter Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting agreed to the manual verification of all eligible voters ahead of the 2016 general elections stating that the manual proof will only be made for eligible voters whose particulars appear on the voters register but rejected by the biometric verification devices.  

Revealing a number of decisions taken at the IPAC meeting, the electoral commission in a media release further indicated major reforms ahead of the 2016 general elections including the cutting down of total number of polling stations from 30,000 to 29,000.

Although issues bothering the voters register was barely disclosed, media reports indicate that The electoral commission has received submissions from the five-member committee which was put together to assess the merits involving all debates pertaining to the voters’ register so that even though predictions remain unclear over the decision of the EC on the voter’s  register, it remains highly sure the commission is left with the decision on either going in with a new voters’ register or maintaining the old one.
