"The issue of electricity more than any other issue has been the overriding problem that our people are complaining about and in many ways, they feel aggrieved in the way that electricity was cut off, in some cases for quite a long time which is a real concern," he said.

Meanwhile, voter registration is underway until Sunday.

But online registrations will continue beyond the weekend.
