Itula asks tribunal to stop use of EVMs

Panduleni Itula


INDEPENDENT presidential candidate Panduleni Itula on Wednesday filed an urgent application in the Electoral Tribunal to have the Electoral Commission of Namibia ordered not to use electronic voting machines in the upcoming presidential and National Assembly elections.

In an affidavit filed at the Electoral Tribunal of the Windhoek district, Itula said reports about missing EVMs cast doubts on the credibility of elections in which the machines are used in Namibia.

He said, as an alternative to the removal of the EVMs from the election process, the ECN must be ordered to implement a voter verifiable paper audit trail (VVPAT) system to function simultaneously and in conjunction with EVMs, or to deploy competent technicians to each polling station for verification of the machines if EVMs were to be used.
