The Electoral Commission of Zambia ECZ has announced that the certified 2021 register of voters stands at 7, 023, 499.

Chief Electoral Officer Patrick Nshindano announced that this was after consolidation, deduplication, transfers , appeals and objections on the voter register.

Mr Nshindano said only 43.2 percent of registered voters were able to verify their details.

“Of these 57 percent verified physically whilst 43 percent verified digitally,” he said.

He said the commission has removed 21, 106 duplicate records from the register.

“Out of 7 023 499, 3, 751 040 are female representing 53.4 percent while 3, 272, 459 are male representing 46.6 percent,” he said.

Mr Nshindano further disclosed that the age group between 24 years and 34 years accounted for the highest proportion of the registered voters accounting to 29.6 percent.

“This was followed by the age group 34 years to 50 years at 28.9 percent. The age group 50 years and above was the lowest proportion of registered voters at 17.1 percent. 24 years and below age group accounted for 24.4 percent, “ he added.

Mr Nshindano also stated that Lusaka Province accounts for the highest number of registered voters representing 17.71 percent with 1, 243, 619, whilst North Western is lowest at 5.51 percent with 386, 677 of the total register of voters.

He also stated that at constituency level, Kanyama of Lusaka District has the highest number of registered voters at 177, 411 whilst Lufubu Constituency of Ngabwe District has the lowest number of registered voters at 11, 411.

Mr Nshindano also said the Certified Register will be made public after being printed and will be going at K50 per polling station.

He however said presidential candidates will be given a free copy of the register.

Meanwhile Mr Nshindano also disclosed that 19 political parties have paid the K95 000 kwacha which is a requirement for nominations.

He however said this does not mean that all 19 will stand in the 2021 general election as there are other requirements that the candidates need to have.

  1. 6,000,000 of those are voting for PF according to our latest poll predictions. The rest shared among the f00lish opposition.

    Imwe bantu What should be of a concern is how close that randy photographer boy chellah tukuta is getting to mrs hichilema. All those photos of her he is getting might lead to marital disputes. Don’t be surprised when HHs next child is born with teeth that are in all different directions.

  3. This is worrying for a fairly mature democracy like ours. It was mentioned before when Levy died that registration and verification of voters should be an on-going thing. In Canada, for instance, you could register on the exact pooling date and at a pooling station. People move. Interests grow as the election day nears.

  4. Women and youths will largely determine the outcome of Lungu’s victory in August. There will be 50-60 percent turnout, 4½ to 3½ million votes for all to share from. Am afraid the 27, 000 gap difference the UPND received will distinctively increase 10 to 20 times to win by 540,000 ballots. Clear win

  6. @Mulogonti. If I understand your post correctly, you are right that PF is likely to increase the margin
    from 100,000 plus in 2016 (correction: 27,000 was for 2015!) to possibly more than 500,000.
    Like them or dislike them, PF are much more organized in 2021 than they were in 2015/2016. Most importantly, they neutralized CK, the biggest threat in their strongholds.

  7. @Thanks Country man. Good observation. Soon other
    lame political scientists like Dr. Neo Simutanyi will pop up with crazy analyses and forecasts, ultimately giving the opposition false hopes.

  8. The very definition of clowning.! How can one certify his own handiwork! This ECZ is most laughable and unfit for purpose organisation after Zambia police and PF. You sit in a dark corner all by yourselves and say here is the certified register!

    Why is it so hard to use common sense!

  9. I have a feeling we are in for a huge shock, even ECZ will not be able to hide their shock! Returns from Lusaka Urban & Copperbelt Urban turn sour, Central Province overwhelmingly reject Tutwa politics. Shock, shook, rejected and dejected.

  10. I am now 100% convinced that ECL is a gonna. That voter demographics tells the whole story. You can fool the order folks but not the majority of the youth voters. This is the group that took out Trump, started the Arab revolution, held world wild George Floyd demonstration. PF cheaps politics are for the old gullible voters, not the well informed youths
