This follows an upsurge in cases during the month of July 2021 .
“ERC, noting the surging cases of COVID-19 welcomes the notice with encouragement to ZEC to strengthen its engagements with stakeholders in times of the pandemic as replicated by other regional electoral commissions,” the statement reads.
ERC further reminds the Commission to extensively consult with stakeholders in light of major electoral activities like voter registration, delimitation process and the yet to be announced by-elections.
