MULTINATIONAL Observer Group (MOG) coordinator Alice Cawte says they are ready to commence observation for the pre-poll voting period which begins next Monday.

Ms Cawte said the MOG would be deploying teams from tomorrow for the six days of pre-polling across the four divisions, including in rural and remote areas, to observe voting.

She said the team would also observe the security, transport and storage of ballot boxes, as well as the conduct of election officials and others.

“Ahead of these deployments, we have briefed our observers to ensure that our observations are comprehensive and objective,” Ms Catwe said.

“We are confident that we are well prepared to perform our technical observations for the voting period ahead.”
