Shadow Minister of Local Government and Regional Development, Ganesh Mahipaul is calling for a credible voters list, which he says equals credible elections and equal credible results.
Pointing out there is a bloated List of Electors consisting of dead people and migrants, Mahipaul made known that credible elections are important and credible elections begin with a credible list of electors.
In any democracy, says Mahipaul, elections are very important but credible elections are more important and credible elections with credible results can only be guaranteed with a credible list of electors. “Elections with this list of electors will certainly not be credible elections.”
Without exception regional and international organisations that observed the 2020 General and Regional Elections have at the minimum called for a clean voters list. Local Government Elections are scheduled for March 13, 2023. This election will be held with a Preliminary Voters List representing 91 % of the population which is about 684,300 names.
According to Mahipaul “our focus as a nation must be to ensure free, fair and free from fear elections and that can only be guaranteed with a credible list which will give us credible elections and assure us with credible results.”
