Unanswered fax lines at ECN delaying election results

MARIENTAL; Unanswered fax lines at the Electoral Commission of Namibia (ECN) head office in Windhoek are delaying the transmission of Hardap Regional election results for final verification there.

These are the results of the Presidential and National Assembly elections held countrywide on Friday.

ECN Regional Co-ordinator for the Hardap Region, Augustinus Ucham told Nampa that by 09h30 Saturday, some election results have not yet reached the ECN in the capital.

“This is something out of our control. The fax numbers they provided us are not working there (ECN),” he lamented.

A total of 45 834 inhabitants of the Hardap Region have registered to vote in eight constituencies – Daweb, Aranos, Gibeon, Mariental Rural, Mariental Urban, Rehoboth Urban East, Rehoboth Urban West, and Rehoboth Rural.
