The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has said the inspection of the voters roll which was suspended just a day after it started recently will restart tomorrow.
In a statement signed by MEC’s chief elections officer Willie Kalonga, MEC said it has worked on the inconsistencies that were discovered in the voters’ roll and the commission is now ready to resume.
MEC has since advised all registered voters to go to the centres they registered to inspect how their registration details are appearing in the voters roll.
“Registered voters who lost their certificates should also go to the centres where they registered to get duplicate certificates which will enable them to vote easily on May 20 2014.
“The commission is also urging the public to report deaths of their relatives so that they should be removed from voters register,” reads the statement in part.
The statement adds that the first phase of the verification exercise will start with Nsanje, Chikhwawa, Blantyre City, Blantyre District, Mwanza, Neno, Chiradzulu, Phalombe, Thyolo, Luchenza, Zomba City and Zomba.
Malawi Electoral Support Network (Mesn) chairperson Steve Duwa said people were expecting that commission to first give the status of the voters roll then proceed to announce dates for the commencement of the exercise.
