Zambezia preparing election logistics
 
Quelimane (Mozambique), 6 Oct (AIM) – The Electoral Administration Technical Secretariat (STAE) in the central province of Zambezia has guaranteed that it is seeking to solve all the formidable logistical problems which this province poses so as to guarantee that all the voting material will be in place for the general and provincial elections scheduled for 15 October.

The STAE provincial director, Adolfo Gomes, told reporters that his institution needs 302 vehicles of various sizes and 25 tractors, to take the voting material to all the polling stations. Given the nature of this coastal province, 45 boats will also be used. One helicopter will also be used.

Since there are some areas that vehicles cannot reach, STAE plans to hire 244 people to carry material on foot to the most remote parts of Zambezia. “We have more than 400 zones of difficult access in the province”, said Gomes.

“The provincial government is mobilizing resources, particularly vehicles”, he said. “A multi-sector team is working in the districts, so that the local governments can support the process in accordance with the conditions of each area”.

One problem is that there are not enough classrooms available to serve as polling stations. Zambezia has 1.95 million registered voters, who should cast their ballots in 2.925 polling stations. Schools are always the preferred locations for polling stations – but there are not enough of them in Zambezia.

There are 489 polling stations for which classrooms do not exist, and in these areas the local authorities are building temporary shelters.

Gomes said that 22,250 people have been recruited to work as polling station staff – these include 8,875 chosen by the three parliamentary parties. The ruling Frelimo Party, Renamo and the Mozambique Democratic Movement (MDM) are each allowed to appoint one member of staff at each polling station.

Of the people recruited, 20,475 will eventually be selected to work at the polling stations (seven staff members per station).
