There are 10 variables, which serve as a guide for chiefs of provincial police and district/municipal police across the country, to secure the elections in their respective jurisdiction, he noted.

The variables include professionalism of election organizers, conflict within political party executive board, professionalism of election supervisors, geographical conditions, characteristics of local people, and security issues.

Other causes of conflict during the elections include names of voters excluded from the definite voter list, lack of logistics, and unwillingness of candidates to accept defeat, he remarked.

The elections will be held simultaneously in 17 provinces, 39 municipalities, and 115 districts across the country on June 27, 2018.
