KHORIXAS, 28 NOV 2014 (NAMPA) The voting process started off on a good note at Khorixas in the Kunene Region, as most of the polling stations opened their doors by 07h00 exactly.
When this reporter visited the five polling stations at the town, there were long queues of people eagerly waiting to cast their votes in the country's fifth Presidential and National Assembly elections.
The Chairperson of the Management Committee of the Kunene Regional Council, Dudu Murorua was among the first people to cast his vote at the Eddie Bowe Primary School polling station.
After casting his vote, Murorua said the voting process was slow, mainly due to the new electronic voting machines (EVMs).
The use of the EVMs will only be good in the counting process, he said, adding that it is a learning process for everybody.
Murorua is Vice-President of the United Democratic Front (UDF), and he is also second on that party's list of parliamentary candidates.
