“Taking centre stage also, is the online incident reporting, through our website to ensure prompt resolution of crisis and other critical challenges

“Also, our work on voter education and enlightenment has intensified. Inclusivity mechanisms for women; youths, persons with disabilities and other vulnerable groups within the population are also receiving proper attention,” she said

Phillips explained that awareness and sensitisation programmes would be rolled out to appeal the teeming youths’ involvement and participation.

“The electorates would be encouraged, informed and provided with basic information about participating in elections so as to freely express their political choices through the electoral process.
