The Malawi Electoral Commission is informing the public that it has revised dates for conducting voter registration in Chitipa district.
|Mr Willie Kalonga, MEC Chief Elections Officer|
Registration in the district will now take place in the sixth phase to run from 15 to 28 October, 2013. The Commission has made this decision following requests from the district that registration should be conducted earlier than planned before the rainy season. During the rainy season most of the areas might be difficult to reach and this can affect registration.
The registration exercise in Chitipa will be done alongside other areas to be covered under phase six which are Lilongwe City (not rural), all constituencies in Dowa, Mchinji South and Southwest constituencies and Dedza West, Central, Central East, Southwest and Northwest constituencies which were not covered in phase five.
The Commission is also informing the public that it is currently reviewing registration dates for Rumphi, Nkhata Bay and Likoma districts with the aim of conducting registration earlier and will announce the dates in due course.
The Commission has mobilized enough personnel, equipment and materials to deploy extra 150 teams that will conduct voter registration in Chitipa.
