IEC Refutes Voter Registration Reports

Banjul, The Gambia (TNBES) The Independent Electoral Commission has refuted what it described as an erroneous notion being peddled around that it is presently carrying out a valid voter registration exercise.

A statement from the Commission said that the truth is that the IEC is currently considering various operations for the use of biometric-based solutions in the forth coming registration of voters exercise, commencing in January 2011.

According to the media dispatch, this is the reason why two companies namely, Code Incorporated and Zetes Pass were invited to The Gambia to conduct mock registration exercises from January 14 to 16, 2010, which will enable both stakeholders and the Commission to make an informed judgment on the way forward in the electoral process.

The statement also read: “All things being equal, registration of voters will commence in January 2011. Recruitment and training will be conducted in the last quarter of 2010.” VOL:2 ISSN:39
