Crucial poll training

TRAINING of election officials to successfully conduct a one-day election will be a key focus, says Electoral Commission chairman Chen Bunn Young.

And the commission held a meeting with heads of various diplomatic missions and NGOs yesterday on how they will contribute towards the election.

"I think we have had a very good response. They have already indicated that they will be willing to extend their contribution," Mr Young said.

He said he also briefed the head of the diplomatic missions and NGOs on the need for more training of election officials.

"The (poll) results will start coming out immediately, within an hour or two and so training of the staff and individuals in that regard is important."

Mr Young said with the diplomatic missions and NGOs being important stakeholders, their contributions were important.

"We were able to take them through what we have done to date and also presented them where we're going and the needs of the Electoral Commission and the challenges that lay ahead of us and the timeframe to the September elections."

He said the area where assistance was needed was on voter education and training.
