Elections Commission has said that 45,000 people have re-registered to vote outside their native islands in the Presidential Election next month.
Member and Spokesperson of the Elections Commission, Ahmed Akram, told Sun Media that 45,000 re-registration forms have been processed so far and the re-registration applicants would receive SMS notification starting from today.
Highlighting the vast amount of re-registrations being submitted, Akram said that three more days will be given after the re-registration period expires to resolve any issues with the voting location.
Nothing the request to the Maldives Police Service to verify 2,000 forms submitted to the Commission, Akram said that if a fingerprint doesn’t match, that form would be invalid.
Re-registration forms can be submitted every day of the week except for Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the election centre at the old Jamaaluddeen School building.
The last Presidential Election in 2013 saw 60,000 re-registrations and the re-registrations for this next election is expected to be even greater.
