What is the GRV all about?

The Electoral Commission of Namibia (ECN) is carrying out a General Registration of Voters (GRV) in the run-up to the 2014 National Assembly and Presidential elections to be held towards the end of the year. The voter registration period, which started on January 15th, will run until March 2nd 2014.
Based on the 2011 population census approximately 1.3 million Namibian citizens are 18 years of age or older and will therefore be eligible to vote in the 2014 elections. The current voter registration process is governed by the Electoral Act of 1992.

The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) recently caught up with the Director of Elections, Professor Paul Isaak, to discuss the new general voter registration campaign.

Why should the ordinary Namibian citizen register to vote during this general voter registration period?
