Is Naboo System Faulty?

The Chief Elections Officer also responded to the assertion that the Naboo Online System has an automatic feature of trying to correct itself and deleting any duplication instead of flagging them for correction. The Naboo System is an online programme, which collects all applications, but the issue that is highlighted in the letter is that Naboo does not allow for the duplication of registration numbers. According to Tamai, the issues stem from the officers who are responsible to assign accurate registration numbers.

“What I gathered from his letter was that in terms of the system itself that it has some glitch or some kind of defect. But I’ll tell you that the system we have in place does not allow you to have duplicate numbers so when a person has duplicate number it automatically takes out. Again those issues stem from the officer because it is the officer responsibility to ensure that when you assign numbers you assign correct numbers. So all these are things that we need to look at in terms of the process and for officers choosing to do as they please and refusing to follow directive.”

“How do you ensure that there is no duplication in the system?”

“We have a system where we go through where we check for duplicates. We have a system that picks up at those things. So we have to communicate back to the officers that this is what the system is telling us  please address so and so. Because again you might have persons who go to one  electoral decision to apply and they go to a different electoral decision. Here is where auditing will take place because we will pick up that information.”
