ECZ starts training electoral officers ahead of the August 11 polls

General News ECZ starts training electoral officers ahead of the August 11 polls

The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) says it has started training district electoral officers in Northern Province ahead of the August 11 general elections.

ECZ Provincial electoral officer, Abel Siwakwi who officially opened a five-day training workshop in Kasama District has since urged participants to take the training seriously.

Mr. Siwakwi said there are a number of changes to the new constitutions which requires proper understanding by the electoral officers.

He further pointed out the new system of electing a Mayor as one of the issues that need to be given particular attention during the training.

Mr. Siwakwi revealed that August 11 election will go side by side with a referendum exercise hence the need for the electoral officers to take advantage of the training workshop so as to have a correct understanding on the matter.

He said participants have been drawn from different districts of Northern Province and the workshop is likely to be concluded on Thursday this week.

Mr. Siwakwi said others who are participating in the ongoing workshop are returning officers, and their assistants.

  1. Okay.
    Otherwise no printing of ballots in Dubai ECZ, people need transparent elections. Moreover, Dubai is too far beyond the limits of the economic situation in the country & very expensive to the cost reflective analysis. Transportation etc.
    ECZ should not be used or use itself to plant seeds of discontent in the country & respect the wishes of the majority of Zambians. No printing of ballot papers in Dubai. The RB’s MMD scheme won’t work. By the way, how is RB after that fire episode at a Hotel in Dubai?
    ECZ has lost its character of legitimate reason being that, the entire board of directors is corruptly rotten & needs change to regain the legitimate trust.

    The Skeleton Key

  2. Beats me why these thugs won’t print in Zambia. Why empower already rich Dubai or even RSA? When is stup!d thinking going to end in Zambia?
