Solomons voters list completed

1:38 pm on 3 October 2014

The Solomon Islands Electoral Commission says it will officially receive its completed voters registration list on Monday.

The Commission's media unit has confirmed that the country's first biometric voters list was completed today.

The new system was introduced to try to eliminate multiple registrations and ghost voting as seen in previous elections.

The Electoral Commission is yet to announce an election date and open nominations for the polls, which are tipped for mid November or early December.

10 political parties are finalising their registration under the Political Parties Integrity Act, which was adopted to curb political instability by strengthening party politics.
