Out of constituency registration concern

Advertise with Islandsun



SOLOMON Islands Electoral Commission has been asked to announce if it will conduct “out of constituency registration” in provincial centres in the country.

The call follows concerns that many voters employed in urban centres may not be allowed to travel to their constituencies to vote on election day.

Concerned man from Malaita province, Mr Henry Tuhu said people need clarification on the matter as voter’s registration is looming.

He said during the previous voter registration, a centre was established in Honiara for “Out of constituency registration”. He questions if this will be available again this year.

Tuhu said, “if out of constituency registration can happen in Honiara for this upcoming voter’s registration, why provincial centres?”
