ECZ postpones voter registration

THE Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) has rescheduled dates for the commencement of the voter registration exercise due to a delay in buying equipment and materials needed for the task.
ECZ public relations manager Cris Akufuna said in a statement issued yesterday that the registration exercise, which was supposed to start on August 17, 2015, will now begin on September 14, 2015.
Mr Akufuna said the exercise will be conducted at designated voter registration centres and civic centres of all councils.
He said for mobile registration, the exercise will now close at designated voter registration centres on November 11, 2015 while the closure of the voter registration at civic centres in all districts still remains March 31, 2015.
Mr Akufuna said the commission has met all registered political parties and informed them of the rescheduled dates.
