Watchdog Concerned Over Mozambique Voter Registration Anomalies

Mozambique's National Elections Commission (CNE) approved a proposal that schedules October 11, 2023 as the date for the sixth municipal elections across the country. The municipal elections will be the first test of the new CNE and its Chairperson, Anglican Bishop Carlos Matsinhe.

The registration process deteriorated in the second week, according to the only civil society observer group, Mais Integridade. It said that the percentage of registration stations that had to cease operations due to malfunctions and a shortage of supplies, rose from 20% in the first week to 26% in the second.

The observer group also found that 18% of people registering did not receive their voters cards on the day of registration, due to a breakdown of printers, and prevalence of electoral offences.
