ECZ Starts off with 16 000 Pre-Online Registrations

Feature Politics ECZ Starts off with 16 000 Pre-Online Registrations

The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) says the pre-online registration has been successful so far receiving about 16, 000 applications after launching the process in Lusaka yesterday.

ECZ Chief Electoral Officer Patrick Nshindano says voters should not wait for an extension of the process but rather register now before November 6th, 2020.

The ECZ Chief Electoral Officer said this when he addressed journalists at the Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services’ office in Lusaka on Tuesday.

“So far, the pre-online registration has been successful for the few hours that we have observed. Just yesterday we had 16, 000 registrations/applications, we hope that this trend will continue,” he said.

Mr. Nshindano hoped that if this trend of applying online continues, the commission will be able to meet the set target.

He clarified that the current voters’ cards will not be used in the next elections hence the need to apply and be included in the new voter register.

He stated that the current register contains people who are deceased, and that is why the commission is coming up with the new voter register.

The ECZ Chief Electoral Officer said the commission means well during this process hence the need to be supported by all stakeholders.


  1. Just close that ECZ please. Why is it so hard to delete wrong people? Delete ECZ and let ZNS ran the thing. ZNS means Zambian National Service… they are ready to render SERVICE with honor.
    Idyots paid for nothing. 4000 ECZ employees waiting for on-line registration, and what are they paid for, just waiting for ballot papers?
    Deploy those district ECZ lazy officers to follow Kampyongo’s NRC distributors and register voters.

  2. It’s a good system although it’s a bit user unfriendly for those who have never handled internet and computers. We don’t know how this is going to work for our people in rural areas where’s internet and computers let alone smart phones are unavailable.

  3. If we get 16000 as our average online registration figure per day then the target won’t be met in 30 days.

    It’s either you move door to door to help people register using your devices and internet or you keep letting people doubt your ability to think outside the box.

    Let’s not wait for complaints but but quicker and better solutions that will benefit all.
