The former Energy Minister threatened to sue the EC if those who did not find their names on the electoral register are not rectify last month in an interview with journalists in Parliament House. 

According to the Ellembele lawmaker, the names had been verified and indeed are those who had registered and did not find their names during the exhibition have their names on now.  

“It is a very interesting experience, EC has admitted that they were wrong to have omitted these names and I am encouraged that they have taken the trouble to reverse and restore the names, the issue is that there are a lot of constituencies that have same challenges”.

As to what should be done to the others with similar problems like his, he noted that, according to the election director in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) headquarters there are close to half a million of people whose names did not appear when the names were exhibited.
