Senate Committee on Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, says the ongoing review of the Electoral Law will inject better ideas into the country’s electoral system.
Chairman Senate Committee on INEC, Kabiru Gaya, made this known on Thursday in Lagos during a retreat on the Electoral Legal framework organised by INEC.
According to him, the inherent problem in the nation’s electoral process included the refusal by the political players to adhere to election rules; a practice that has rubbed off on the citizenry and supporters of political aspirants.
In her remarks, Chairman House of Representatives Committee on Electoral Matters, Dr. Aisha Dukku, noted that elections were major pillars of leadership selection in liberal democracies.
Country Director for the International Foundation for Electoral Systems, IFES, Hermann Thiel, said globally, legislators and electoral administrators were facing new challenges on credibility and legitimacy of electoral processes.
