ECN prepares for general registration of voters


The Electoral Commission of Namibia is in full swing with preparations for the General Registration of Voters and has commenced with a mock voters' registration exercise in the |Khomas Region.

Namibia will be heading to the polls in November this year for the presidential and National Assembly elections.

This is the second mock voter's registration undertaken by the electoral body.

In November last year, ECN covered five regions, to test the new technology it intends to use to register voters for the November polls.

ECN urged to speed up publication of new voters register


John Likando, a Swapo MP in the National Council, is urging the Electoral Commission of Namibia (ECN) to accelerate preparations for the General Registration of Voters (GRV) following recent amendments to the Electoral Act.

He emphasised the importance of this exercise and called for unified support from all legislators to aid the ECN in this crucial process.

The National Assembly this week approved an amendment to the Electoral Act that allows for the general registration of voters to take place after the prescribed time frame.
