With the voter verification exercise scheduled on Monday, Police in Dedza say they will enhance security to ensure the exercise is smooth and credible.
Dedza Police Station officer-in-charge Emmie Soko made the assurance when responding to queries from different elections stakeholders during a District Elections Supervisory Team meeting.
She said police have put in place strict measures to ensure that no police officer is off duty during the exercise.
“As police, we are aware that there are some officers who are reluctant, but let me assure you that we are ready to deliver,” said Soko.
In his remarks, Dedza district commissioner Francis Matewere urged communities to go for verification, saying this is an important exercise as people will know whether they are eligible voters in the May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections.
The first phase of voter registration will take place in Kasungu, Salima and Dedza districts. Dedza has 237 polling centres.
The exercise will run for five days from the 10th to the 14th of December 2018, according to Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC).
