My country remains a strange and interesting place in the run up to National and Regional Elections 2020, for reasons which I never understood.
GECOM suspended House-to House Registration.
Spurious reasons were advanced to justify us going into Elections before completing this House-to-House registration exercise.
For some equally strange reason our political leaders seem to accept going into Elections using a list that was clearly not wholesome.
Those of us who have experienced the contentions of Elections, since Universal Adult Suffrage was introduced in 1953, must know how important an updated list of voters is.
What prevented us from continuing House-to-House Registration, Covid 19 or no Covid?,
Are we to believe that our new political leaders relish a situation where Elections provide opportunities for disputes?
For the sake of removing all obstacles in the way of a peaceful and speedy Election, a House-to-House registration should be reactivated and a system put in place for an annual review and update of such a list.
