THE Solomon Islands Electoral Commission (SIEC) is moving closer to finalising the voter list for Choiseul and Western provincial elections.

The Commission is at the public inquiry phase in the registration process.

In this phase, any complain made against names on the registration lists are investigated by the revising officers in public inquiry meetings.

According to the Commission this is done at community level within the constituencies.

This phase will end this Sunday.

During this phase, decision from these meetings whether to remove or re-inert names of a person on the lists depend on the evidences that supported these claims.

The revising officer will make these decisions.

The decisions will be sent to the Commission to amend the draft voters list and then finalised them in time for the elections.
