The Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) has published the provisional electoral list in Madagascar: more than 9.6 million voters are already registered.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) in Madagascar announced Tuesday the publication of the provisional electoral list at the district level for the next presidential election in the country. According to the list, more than 10 million voters have registered.
However, the Commission detected duplicates and names with irregularities, which resulted in a reduction in the number of registered voters to 9,623,662. However, voter registration continues, which could increase the number of registered voters in the future.
The General Rapporteur to the CENI, Soava Andriamarotafika, explained that copies of the finalized list are deposited at the neighborhood level to allow citizens to register on the electoral list until next June. The CENI began the census in October 2022 as part of the total overhaul of the electoral list in preparation for the next presidential election scheduled for this year.
According to the provisional calendar published by the CENI, the first round of the presidential election is scheduled for November 9, 2023 while the second round is scheduled for December 20. The publication of the provisional electoral list is an important step in the preparation of the presidential election in Madagascar, and will allow the authorities to guarantee the transparency and integrity of the electoral process.
