The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) says it will review remuneration and working conditions for registration supervisors and officers to incentivise the team.
UNDP resident coordinator Mia Seppo gave the assurance on Saturday on the sidelines of a visit to some registration centres in Salima.
She said she is aware of the concerns and discontent among registration supervisors and officers over pay in the ongoing national registration campaign.
“We are looking into the issue of remuneration. It is really important to note that we had 17 000 applications from interested people who wanted to be registration officers,” Seppo said.
She said the UNDP is also considering coming up with bonus payment to reward officers that have performed to the best of their capabilities.
In her remarks, Minister of Home Affairs and Internal Security Grace Chiumia expressed satisfaction with the pace of the exercise.
She disclosed that by Saturday, slightly over one million Malawians had registered.
Meanwhile, Seppo has commended the “good cooperation” that exists among key players, which include registration staff, district commissioners, the National Initiative for Civic Education (Nice) and National Registration Bureau. na
