Opposition Commissioners Vincent Alexander and Desmond Trotman have withheld their support for the holding of Local Government Elections.

The reasons proffered were: one, GECOM’s refusal to review it’s operations after the 2020 elections; and two, the Commission refusal to proceed with the use of fingerprints at the place of poll for voter identification. Further, the commissioners noted that the body is yet to address the second motion on biometrics which was submitted over two months ago.

The commissioner also noted that plans are proceeding for elections in the shadow of electoral reform that might take effect before the elections, although GECOM’s plan has not anticipated or catered for the government’s proposed reform.
