Nshindano is hopeful that the issuance of NRCs will not be extended further and that in an event that it happens, the ECZ will not adjust the time to start the voter registration exercise.
Meanwhile Nshindano has disclosed that the ECZ will introduce the conversion of streams into polling stations in the 2021 general elections.
He disclosed that the new development will be piloted in the forth-coming Lukashya and Mwansabombwe parliamentary by election.
