PDM, ECN at loggerheads over Electoral Act 77

The Electoral Commission of Namibia (ECN) and the Popular Democratic Movement (PDM) are still at loggerheads over the list of candidates to the National Assembly.
These are candidates, who, in terms of Electoral Act, have been disqualified. The provision in the Act compels all persons employed in the public service and members of regional and local authority councils to relinquish their positions before they can be considered as candidates on the party list for the election.
However, the PDM insists that it will stick to its original list as submitted.
