The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has revealed plans to review its adopted technologies for elections to improve conduct of elections.
INEC Director of Voter Education and Publicity Department, Nick Dazang, disclosed this at a workshop on the ‘Review of National Voter Education Manual’ in Keffi, Nasarawa State.
The five-day workshop is organised by INEC in partnership with the Westminster Foundation for Democracy (WFD). Dazang told newsmen on the sidelines of the workshop that INEC began the process for electronic voting since 2004 when it introduced optic map registration forms.
On the amendment of the Electoral Act, Dazang said the commission was working with two committees of the National Assembly, adding that substantial gains were being made.
He expressed optimism that the federal lawmakers would rise to the challenge in meeting up with its promise of amending the Electoral Act before the second quarter of 2021.
