NCD counting to start at 6pm

Counting for NCD regional will start at 6pm today.

On the other hand, counting for North West Open is expected to commence tomorrow.

This is according to the Election Manager Alwyn Jimmy.

The message was relayed to a huge crowd, including counting officials, in front of Rita Flynn complex today by Superintendent Operations, Fred Tundu.

Tundu addressed all queries and advised counting officials to be at the venue at the given time.

They will be issued vests on shift and allowed into the venue to take their positions.

Tundu also said for the first time, candidates and scrutineers will be allowed inside the venue as well to inspect the setup before counting begins.

He briefly went through basic house rules: Mobile phones are allowed but should be on silent and money - minimal of K100 is allowed - no lump sum of money is allowed in the venue for polling officials and everybody else.

In the meantime, he is advising the public to keep calm and refrain from spreading false rumours on social media.

There are also two standby generator sets in case of power outage.
