April 13, 2021 11:05 am

The public consultations on the review of the Electoral Bills continue to draw interest from the public in the Northern Division.

Standing Committee on Justice, Law and Human Rights Chair, Alvick Maharaj says many people are interested in how the elections are conducted and ways the process can be improved.

Maharaj says a lot of submissions have been received as well on the registration of voters and how the process can be made convenient to those in the rural areas.
