The Electoral Commission of Namibia has registered approximately 96 247 eligible voters countrywide during the first week of the voters’ supplementary registration process, with those who still wish to register having the rest of today and tomorrow to still do so. The Namibia press agency quotes ECN Chief Electoral and Referenda Officer Theo Mujoro as saying that of the total number of voters registered thus far, 34 270 are new voters registering for the first time, while the difference is individuals registering due to changed addresses and replacement of lost or damaged voter cards. Mujoro noted that the electoral body is pleased with the way the public has responded to the process, given the relatively long queues especially in the urban centres across the 14 regions and applauded the electorate for heeding the call to visit the registration venues in order to participate in the important democratic process.
