Why can’t someone collect my Identification Card on my behalf?

Registration Rule 14(6) of the Representation of the People Act, Chapter 2:01 inter alia states:

“A person to whom a completed identification card is being delivered shall read it and sign it in the presence of the registration officer, or any other authorised officer if he is satisfied that the contents are correct”.

N.B: Persons who are in possession of a Power of Attorney or Letters of Authorization are prohibited from the collection of the registrant’s identification card.
