A new voters list planned for Solomon Islands

Updated 23 April 2013, 16:16 AEST

The Solomon Islands will have a brand new Voters List for the 2014 Elections thanks to a electoral provisions amendment bill passed in the March sitting of Parliament.

Additional funding is still being sought to produce the new list, as it will employ a new biometric system utilising photography and fingerprinting to improve the accuracy and integrity of the list.

Solomon Islands Journalist Koroi Hawkins spoke with the Chairman of Solomon Islands Electoral Commission Polycarp Haununu about the new list.

Presenter: Koroi Hawkins
