The Electoral Commission (EC) says it is working with security agencies to prevent overcrowding at its registration centres.
The Commission began the compilation of the new voters’ register on Monday, June 30, 2020.
There were reports of crowding and disregard for social distancing and COVID-19 safety protocols at the various centres nationwide; a challenge acknowledged by the electoral management body.
“All in all reports reaching the Commission depict a positive turnout at all the registration centres. The Commission is aware that some centres recorded high numbers leading to some overcrowding. We are taking steps to work with the security agencies to address possible overcrowding at our registration centres,” the Commission assured in a statement.
Below is the EC’s press release
