INEC to Voters: Help us identify deceased persons on registers

No fewer than 79 political parties will be fielding candidates in the 2019 general elections, Saturday Vanguard has learned. Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ruled out the possibility of implementing all the provisions of the amended Electoral Act if given Presidential assent, particularly as they relate to electronic voting.

“We have gone really far with this. If tomorrow the bill is assented to, there are provisions that we can immediately implement but there are provisions that we cannot implement simply because of time. For instance, full-blown electronic voting. It is impossible within the time-frame available which is 112 days.”
