The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) has said that the delimitation exercise and the online voters’ registration platform will begin in 2019 and 2020 respectively, in preparation for the 2021 General elections.
Speaking in an interview with ZNBC news, ECZ Public Relations Manager Margaret Chimanse said the commission will begin with the delimitation exercise as this will decongest large constituencies and create clear boundaries for voters.
Ms. Chimanse further explained that the delimitation exercise will engage village head men as well as civil societies to ensure no one is left behind.
She explained that the online voter’s registration platform will enable new voters register with ease.
Ms. Chimanse said the platform is a secure process which will ensure data is protected and illegal registrations detected.
