The first phase of the voter verification exercise came to an end on Sunday with numerous irregularities as other registered voters could not  access their names casting doubt of having a chance to vote came May 20 .

The exercise  started on April 9 to April 13, 2014, with Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) assuring registered voters that it has worked on the inconsistencies that were discovered in the voters roll.

It has also been established that some registered voters ignored to take part in this exercise of verifying their details.

For example, at Namiwawa centre in Blantyre, less than five hundred people have verified their names out of over two thousand who registered there.

Meanwhile, MEC officials say some centres that failed to open on the first day in the first phase of the voter inspection exercise will have an extension equivalent to the period they were non-operational.
