The Electoral Commission of Zambia has disclosed that a total of 1, 424, 918 new voters were registered as at 3rd December 2015.

And ECZ Public Relations Officer Raphael Phiri said the Commission undertook 1, 350, 012 updates of voter transfers, card replacements and amendments and 33, 120 notifications of deceased voters during the same period.

Mr. Phiri has since urged citizens in possession of Green National Registration Cards and who are above the age of 18 years to ensure that they register as voters before the end of the mobile voter registration on 13th December 2015.

And Mr. Phiri said in a statement said the 14 days mobile voter registration in March 2016 will take place as earlier announced on dates to be determined by the Commission.

‘All persons living with disabilities are reminded to ensure that their disability is recorded by a registration officer even if they are already registered. The public is also reminded that individuals who registered as voters in 2005/6 and 2010/11 do not have to register again as their voter’s cards are still valid,’ Mr Phiri said.
‘Further, No fee should be charged for issuance of a voter’s card. Members of the public should report any registration officer demanding payment to register as voters to the police.’

Lusaka Province is leading the pack with 264, 142 new registrations closely followed by Southern Province with 242, 341 new registrations.

Northwestern and Luapula Provinces have recorded the lowest number of new registrations at 62, 878 and 82, 493.

  1. Hooo God its over for PF, the new votes just from Southern province, which are for HH for obvious reason, are exceeding what he missed to win over Edgar.
    We will miss these bunch of drunk entertainers in PF. We get the serious, no laughing group of … I will not say it!

    • How can you surely miss these bunch of thugs? They should have gone in the Jan 2015 elections, had it not been for rigging and of course a sympathy vote due to the demise of Sata.

  2. These figures are just for new registrations we still have 5 million old voters. When the final compilation is done of both the old and new it will be provinces with large population that will steer the votes. Lsk . cb. eastern. southern. northern.central. luapula. muchinga. northwestern. western in that order is how our population is in Zambia. So it may be too early to pop the champagne thinking you ve beaten PF

  3. Okay, HH lost about 30,000 votes. Lets say all the new voters from Luapula, Muchinga and Northern decide to vote for PF, which I doubt very much, HH would have beaten them still even with just half of the new Southern Province voters voting for him. Those with good reasoning will understand what I am talking about here. Just add the figures correctly and you will get the point.

    Those attempting to use the entire registered voters database will miss the point here.. The starting point here will be the January 2015 elections. Then do your maths from there. PF is losing these elections!

  6. @Mr Intelligent,If u re going to base your reasoning on the January elections,then u will suffer a severe heart attack. January elections had factors that will not obtain in next year’s elections.The following re some things u should consider before u declare your Kachema winner;
    (1) ECL is and will be very much incharge of the country. Meaning,has control of government machinery back in January was just a mere minister.
    (2) Revolution; It is now common sense in Africa and Zambia in particular,for regime change to happen,a revolution is necessary.Meaning,the majority should ve one voice.This is not the case obtaining here in Zambia and this gives PF and ECL an upper hand.
    (3) Tribalism:It is common sense and reasonable to say Southern,Western and N/western provinces will vote for HH…

  7. CONTINUED……,
    (3) Tribalism;It is now common sense and reasonable to assume with certainty that Southern,Western,N/western Provinces will overwhelmingly vote for HH.Likewise,Eastern,Muchinga,Luapula,Northern,Copperbelt and Lusaka will vote for ECL.Considering,the land expanse that ECL commands support from,its easy to declare him winner before elections.
    Conclusion:What made the January elections race tight was the huge voter turnout from Southern Province at about 70% compared to rest at an average of about 30%. ECL won because the 70% Tonga turnout was countered by the vast land that ECL was popular in. I warn Kachemas not rush celebrations because the voting pattern is very much Unlikely to change not anytime soon,not even 2021.
