In response to a question on whether the Commission will continue with plans to roll out a new voters register, the commission answered “Yes, the Commission will continue with the process of acquiring a new biometric system because it is in the national interest to conduct credible elections as mandated by law,” the post stated.

The Commission insists that the voter roll is bloated and that it has become “very difficult to remove the names of the deceased from the register”.
