There was confusion at most polling stations as security personnel, the media, political party agents and EC officials were left frustrated after it was disclosed that persons who could not vote may not be able to exercise their franchise again.
Following this, an emergency Inter Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting was held late Thursday evening and after deliberations, it was unanimously agreed the period of special voting be extended.
The voting will be conducted across the country on the stated date according Deputy Communications Director of the EC Yusif Ayuba on Abusua Nkomo.
