Electoral Commission of Zambian (ECZ) is targeting to register over 70,000 eligible voters in Kasempa district of the North-western province during the ongoing voter registration exercise.
Speaking in an interview with ZANIS yesterday, Kasempa District Electoral Officer, Tryson Chunga said everything was in place to meet the 70,000 target.
“For the population of Kasempa which is above 88,000, we are targeting for more than 70,000 to be captured in the new voter register,” Mr Chunga said.
He pleaded with the residents of Kasempa to exercise patience during the voter registration process as a lot of data has to be captured.
“Let us be patient and follow the deployment plan that we have done,” Mr Chunga said.
He further assured the public that the Commission has enough competent staff who are capable of handling any technical fault when need arises.
“We have a technical officer that has worked for a number of years with the kits,” Mr Chunga added.
Mr Chunga has since encouraged all those who will attain 18 years by 9 May, 2021 to go and register.
He said that the credibility of elections worldwide is dependent on the registration of voters.
We have confidence in you. Please ba ecz do the best that you can do.
At least you have spoken sense today… Not always on HH and UPND.
Impossible unless you want to include ghost voters. 70, 000 is much more than the adult population of Kasempa
I will wear your shirts and vote wisely 2021, the bosses have become subordinates begging for our votes after 4 years of punishing the pipo who employed you then you want to bring baseless empowerments.
