Mr Maelanga said the act review is part of the NCRA government’s electoral reform program with the first draft ready for public input.

It could not be done this years because of our heavy commitment to the two very important exercises we have to undertake, namely; the new Biometric Voter Registration system and the National Parliamentary Elections.”
