During the first phase of voter registration, they managed to garner 1.51million new voters rather than the targeted six million voters that were listed in October last year.
Whereby a total of 396,163 registered voters opted for transfer of registration centres as 2,269 altered some of their particulars.
Covering those in Diaspora as well the commission managed to get on board 2,959 new voters and requests of transfer amounting to 2,964 requests while changing of information had 2,036 applicants.
