UNC discusses voter registration, list of electors with EBC

The United National Congress has met with the Elections and Boundaries Commission (EBC) to discuss issues of voter registration among other things.
 
The meeting was at the request of the UNC and the party says it is part of its mandate to work in the interest of the people of Trinidad and Tobago.
 
A UNC statement said that the team raised the following issues: 
 
• Voter registration
• The ability members from Commonwealth states to vote in Trinidad and Tobago elections
• The ability of the EBC to police the list of electors
• The policy and rationale for the two EBC reports laid in Parliament
 
Additionally, the UNC says that the view was put forward that there are sections of our Representation of the People Act that are antiquated and simply do not reflect modern Trinidad and Tobago.
 
"The EBC has undertaken to respond to concerns of the UNC in writing, and we look forward to the response on the registration of voters and the movement of electoral districts for both Local Government and General Elections," the statement said.
 
It added that the UNC will continue the work necessary to ensure that good governance is returned to Trinidad and Tobago noting that a key component of our democracy is free and fair elections, and we look forward to elections that are free from fear.
