The Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) registered a total of 28,728 voters from January 2023 to December 2023 under the Continuos Voter Registration exercise.
ECZ Chief Electoral Officer, Brown Kasaro, said this provisional data would be subjected to inspection and certification of the Register of Voters for those who registered in 2023 to July, 30, 2024.
Kasaro was speaking at the stakeholders meeting in Lusaka on Thursday on the Continous Voter Registration Exercise.
He reiterated the Commissions commitment to ensure that all eligible citizens participate in the electoral process as this was their right.
“I therefore call upon political parties, civil society/ faith- based organisations, the media and the general public to work with the Commission and create awareness on Continuous Registration of Voters,” Kasaro appealed.
The ECZ Chief Electoral Officer noted that the concerted efforts would ensure that all eligible citizens register as voters.
Kasaro emphasized that it was important to foster open dialogue and collaboration as the Commission embarked on the journey to certify the Register of Voters and expand Contious Registration of Voters services to other districts.
“The Commission will launch the conduct of Continuous Registration of Voters in 10 additional districts on April 4, 2024,” he indicated
Kasaro identified the districts as Mumbwa in Central, Chingola on the Copperbelt, Petauke in Eastern, Kafue in Lusaka, Samfya in Luapula and Mpika in Muchinga.
He said others are Mporokoso in Northern, Mwinilunga in North-Western, Monze in Southern and Kaoma in Western Provinces respectively.
“This would bring the total number of Contious Registration of Voters at the Centres to 30, these processes are pivotal in the electoral process,” Kasaro stated.
