Following the successful holding of the nationwide voter registration exercise, the Independent Electoral Commission, (IEC), is now set to publish the list of voters for public scrutiny.

The Commission in a statement issued yesterday said that, in accordance with Section 19 subsections (4) and (5) and Section 132 of the Election Act, it will publish, at all registration centres, the list of voters for a period of at least 10 days to enable members of the public to scrutinize the list.

“The list of voters will be available for reviewing from Monday 18th July 2011,” it said, while encouraging the public to take the opportunity and participate fully in this very essential component of the electoral process.

It would be recalled that the general registration of voters exercise was conducted from Thursday 5th May 2011 to Friday 17th June 2011.

The provisional number of registered voters is 837, 029.
