Malawi to use National IDs in 2019 elections

The Malawi Electoral Commission chairperson, Dr. Justice Jane Ansah, said the MEC is considering the National Identity Card to be used in identifying people during registration and polling day, saying her institution will work with the National Registration Bureau (NRB) to foster registration of eligible voters.

“The Commission has engaged Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs and Legal Affairs Committee of Parliament on the need to amend the electoral law to provide for one identification document, the National ID. This is in order to have a clean voters’ roll,” Justice Ansar said.
