The Electoral Commission has indicated that more than 44,000 officers have been recruited for the voter registration exercise.
According to the EC chair, Jean Mensaall the personnel have been well trained and are ready for the exercise.
“A major concern a number of citizens have raised with us has to do with the quality of our temporary officers. We have recruited, trained, and deployed over 44, 000 staff into the field. We are confident that the training provided them to operate efficiently and professionally. As part of the training, we have drummed home the importance of instilling in them the principles of integrity, fairness, and transparency in all their activities throughout the registration process”.
She also mentioned that they [recruits] have been made to sign an oath to bear true allegiance to the principles underlying the conduct of the registration exercise.
“We have also introduced a code of conduct that spells out guidelines for their activities. As part of the recruitment exercise. All temporary staff signed an oath pledging to abide by the rules and regulations governing their activities,” she said.
