The Patriots for Economic Progress are disappointed with the Electoral Commission’s procedural requirement for presidential candidate supporters to present themselves in person at it’s provincial offices.
Patriots for Economic Progress President, Sean Tembo says the need for presidential candidate supporters to travel to ECZ offices so that the Commission can obtain biometric parameters and confirm that they are genuine voters does not hold water because, the Commission already collected biometric features from all voters during the voter registration process. Mr. Tembo says there is no need to duplicate the exercise.
Mr. Tembo proposed that the Commission should instead allow presidential candidates to submit a list of their 100 supporters from each province using a pre-approved template which would capture all the required details such as: full names, physical address, NRC and Voters Cards numbers, signatures and phone numbers among others.
