Members of Parliament have tasked the Electoral Commission (EC) to review the Voter verification process again.
Jacob Oulanyah, Deputy Speaker urged the EC to ensure that all peoplea are eligible to vote in the 2021 general elections.
Thanks happened on Wednesday after Arua Woman MP Maurine Osoru raised the matter. Osoru noted that lack of adequate equipment is hindering Electoral Commission (EC) officials from carrying out the voter verification exercise. She also added that theirvisnt enough equipment such as computers yet the deadline is drawing closer. She asked the deadline to be extended.
Busongora North MP William Nzoghu also noted that the Electoral Commission had declined to register young people who will have clocked 18 years by the time of the election.
The Electoral Commission last month started the General Update of the National Voters’ Register, in villages across the country to enable potential voters to confirm their intention to participate in the elections, and where they intend to vote from, for example, place of residence or district of origin.
The verification exercise is slated to end on 11th December.
