“Well, what I have seen here is okay. I think we will get it through and whatever maybe apparent (during the exercise), that can then be talked about for future election.

“I came in, I was checked. They asked me to remove myself glasses and I removed it. My picture appeared. That’s a new one.

“If that will happen all over the country, I think we are making progress. Of course, election is the beginning of good governance for any country.

“It (BVAS) is a new thing and obviously any new thing that will help the credibility and integrity of the process must be encouraged. I saw it and it worked.
