Electoral Commission confirms election date
The Independent Elections and Boundaries Commission has said it is ready to conduct elections on August 8 next year.
The IEBC Chief Executive Ezra Chiloba said they have not asked for a change in elections date.
He denied that the commission wants a time change due to procurement hiccups caused by strict deadlines.
Chiloba said the commission may only fail to conduct elections if a new commission is not put in place in good time.
However, the deadline for submission of applications for those seeking appointment to the commission expired on Monday and work on the shortlist is expected to start from Thursday.
