While speaking with newsmen, Yishawu, who is the Chairman, House Committee on Budget and Economic Planning, said people need more enlightenent in exercising their right to vote.
He expressed satisfaction with the voting process, saying the most important thing is to have free, fair and credible polls.
He explained that it is always difficult to have 100 percent turn out of voters.
“If you look around the world, people that come to vote are between 30 to 40 percent.
“The level of awareness here is very low. The solution to having low turn out is to continue to englightent the people,” he said.
