Electoral authorities seek to clarify Dala Tsp voter enrolment


Yangon, 17 June — Authorities in Dala Township held a meeting Wednesday with local residents, representatives from political parties and civil service organizations to clarify electoral enrolment procedures, in order to ensure the correct numbers of voters are registered in the township ahead of the upcoming general election.
Though there are more than 100,000 people of voting age in the township, only about 90,000 people are eligible to vote, said U Saw Naing, head of the electoral commission in Yangon Region’s
South District.
For purposes of voter registration, the commission does not count people staying in the township with temporary census certificates and guests, even if they are of voting age, he added.
Those who are registered with the township’s census form 66/6 are eligible for voter enrolment.
Local authorities are working in cooperation with the people to be able to compile accurate voter lists, and are aiming to release the electoral roll for Dala Township on 22 June.— Phyo Min Thein
