On Tuesday this week, the Electoral Commission released a revised road map for the forth coming 2021 general elections.
This road map was in observance of the COVID-19 pandemic prevention measures which discourages the gathering of many people and as such all participating candidates, the roadmap suggests, will hold campaigns via the media.
