This proposal, aimed at streamlining the electoral process, seeks to boost efficiency and minimise administrative burdens.
Additionally, the council members expressed concerns regarding the time gap between the announcement of election results and the official assumption of office.
These issues were raised during discussions on Section 25 of the Electoral Amendment Bill.
During discussion, concern was raised about the frequent expiration of voter cards.
MPs underscored the importance of high-quality voter cards that can ensure longevity and reliability in the electoral process.
