Committee on Government Assurances and Public Service Reforms at National Assembly on Tuesday.
Alfandika said: “We are prepared to administer the General Elections. I would therefore like to take this opportunity to give your Committee an update on the
state of MEC’s preparedness.”
On voters inspection exercise MEC Chief Sam Alfandika says it was also sucessful since members of the public had been given options whether using SMS mobile or physically walk and verify if their names still exist on voters’ roll.
