MP Challenges IEBC To Take Voter Registration In Churches, Markets And High Populated Areas

Mbeere South Member of Parliament, Geofrey King'ang'i has challenged the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to change their tactics in the ongoing Enhanced Continuous Voter Registration (ECVR). The legislator urged IEBC officials to to take voter registration to Churches during church days, to markets during market days and places where there are many people.

He disclosed that out of 18,000 target of new voters in Mbeere Constituency the Enhanced Continuous Voter Registration has registered a half of it. He further said if IEBC is to meet the set target, it should engage local administrators such as Nyumba Kumi leaders to rally people to register as voters. The IEBC officials according to him should move from place to place in search of voters but not stay "under trees" as he put it. King'ang'i said this would ensure every legible voter has a chance to exercise their Civic right come 2022 general elections.

The Enhanced Continuous Voter Registration commenced on 4th October and is set to close at 2nd of November. This comes as many people especially students at Universities and colleges are not yet registered as voters ahead of 2022 General elections. It's my request too that IEBC will consider this and put up ECVR centres at various institutions of Higher learning to give equal chances to the students too who are at schools.
