“Thanks to 207 installed computers, our data entry agents are rapidly computerizing registered people,” says Ndayicariye adding that CENI is waiting for 143 computers to have 350 so that the activity should be terminated in 20 expected days.

CENI chairman says 1360 data entry agents have been recruited and divided into four shifts i.e. 340 agents per shift. “The first shift starts activities at 6:00 a.m. to end at midday. The second resumes the data keyboarding activities from midday until 6:00 p.m. and the last two shifts share the twelve remaining hours. It’s a rotation work,” he says.

Pierre Ndayicariye says there are other agents who have been recruited to facilitate the data computerization operations namely 36 archivists, 96 control and validation agents, 28 publication agents, 124 packaging agents, 28 exploitation and publishing team leaders, 4 team leaders of record management and 4 packaging team leaders.

The chairman of the National Independent Electoral Commission says the electoral commission works in collaboration with a local computer house “G&C vision”. “We rely on the experience of our local officials, technicians and other agents. We wish to recruit about 85% of local staff members in this electoral process,” he says.
