THE special voting got off to a slow start in the north as only a limited number of personnel got approval to vote on Wednesday.
Only 90 people cast their votes at a polling station in Oshakati East constituency on Wednesday.
According to the Electoral Commission of Namibia (ECN) voting was very slow at most stations, and no major incidents have been reported.
David Shikomba, a presiding officer at Leo Shoopala polling station in Oshakati West constituency, said voters were slowly making their way to the polling station, a situation he described as shaky start.
Shikomba added that all is sailing smoothly, however some voters had to be turned back as the voter’s verification device (VVD) at the station could not recognise the new cards that some voters got during the supplementary voters registration.
