The Electoral Commission (E.C) is expected to brief Parliament on the upcoming Biometric registration exercise.

The meeting on Tuesday will afford MPs the opportunity of asking questions on the exercise for issues to be clarified by the Electoral Commision.

The E.C is to conduct two pilot biometric registration exercises in Eastern Region (Province) between Feb 25 and 29 to test the various arrangements made for the main exercise.

The main national registration exercise, will take off from March 24 to May 5th and it’s the first time the E.C is going to use the electronic registration for a general election.

Parliament is expected to rise before the commencement of the exercise to enable the MPs visit their constituencies to help their constituents to register.
