Pollster, the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) has cast doubt that it would register the targeted nine million Malawians as voters ahead of the May polls.
MEC commissioner Jean Mathanga said the commission has so far registered six million voters in the past seven phases of the voter registration exercise.
“With this figure, it is a tall order to think that we can meet the nine million target,” she said.
The seventh phase of the registration exercise has so far registered 735000 people, according to Mathanga.
The phase included districts of Karonga, Rumphi, Machinga and Choradzulu.
Mathanga said more women registered in the voter registration exercise in the districts than men.
The next phase of the voter registration exercise shall include Nkhata Bay, Likoma, Mzimba and Mzuzu City.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
