MEC asks Malawians to report deaths of relations during voter verification exercise

The Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has asked Malawians to report deaths of their relatives for purposes of updating their voters roll for the May 20 tripartite elections.

The reports should be brought forward at various centres when the Commission opens for the voter registration exercise starting next Monday.

The Commission is asking the relations to bring along  the deceased voter certificate, a death certificate or a letter from a traditional or religious leader as a matter evidence.

Should people come forth, the Commission will be able to have proper estimates of eligible voters for the forthcoming tripartite elections as some have indeed passed away after the closure of the registration in December last year.

The dates for the verification of the voters’ roll are  March 24 to 28 and from April 1 to 5 2014, respectively, and all registered voters  be able to check for any errors of their  particulars.

In a statement signed by its Chief Elections Officer and released on March 17 2014 MEC calls upon registered voters to go to the centres where they registered and inspect how their names, pictures and other registration details are appearing.

The Chief Elections Officer Mr. Willie Kalonga says in the statement that voters who lost their certificates will also be able to get duplicates so long they go to the centres where they registered.

MEC will also process transfers for those who have moved away from the centres where they registered  during the same period but the people have to bring with them their voter certificate to the centre where they wish to vote at.

The exercise is in two phases for MEC to have adequate teams and equipment at every ward to enable them effectively attend to queries and issues that may arise.
