Political Parties, Media and Civil Society will on February 19-20 meet to make final recommendations to the Independent Electoral Committee (IEC) executive, following an evaluation exercise.

The recommendations might result in the amendment of the Electoral Act. Already returning officers are holding similar workshops around the country.  “Workshops by returning officers are ongoing in different regions,” said IEC spokesperson Osupile Maroba.

He noted that returning officers in Gaborone started their workshops on January 29 while those in Francistown and surrounding areas started yesterday.   “In those workshop, we expect them to say what challenges they faced during the general election and suggest what IEC should do to improve,” he said.
