Electoral Office assures citizens that the process under which its elections are conducted is fair and transparent

The Electoral Office of Jamaica (EOJ) has sought to assure citizens that the process under which it executes elections is fair and transparent.

The assurance comes amidst concern expressed by some members of the public about whether or not the upcoming Local Government Elections will be free of corruption.

The polls are scheduled for February 26, while Nomination Day is slated for February 8.

Speaking with IRIE FM NEWS, Director of Elections, Glasspole Brown, defended the work of the EOJ, noting that it is internationally recognized as an entity governed by honourable principles.

Mr. Brown said Jamaicans should not be discouraged from participating in the voting process.

Meanwhile, Mr. Brown reiterated his call for electors who have not yet collected their identification cards to do so.

He said though electors without identification cards would not be denied the right to vote, the process would be more tedious for them.
