The Anti-Voter Apathy Project (AVAP) has expressed worry over the low voter turnout that was witnessed during the just-ended local government by-elections.
The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) has targeted to register 1.7 million new voters by 2016. Speaking during a meeting to update political parties and stakeholders on the preparations for the registration exercise, ECZ chairperson Esau Chulu said mobile teams will be dispatched to various registration centres around the country and will spend 14 days at each centre.
THE unanimous vote for 50+1 clause in the first new draft constitution at the on going National Constitution Conference(NCC) Sector Groups meeting is a ground breaking move that deserves applause from every well meaning Zambian. This means that Zambians will, no doubt, be able to elect a majority President with such an electoral system in place.
