The Independent National Electoral Commission has revealed plans to meet the National Assembly to seek parliamentary action on electronic transmission of results in the 2023 general elections.
The body also said it had started training the ad hoc workers for the 28 reruns scheduled for January 25.
“We will engage the National Assembly when we finish internal consultations. We are working towards that (electronic transmission of results),” INEC Director (Voter Education and Publicity), Osaze Oluwole-Uzzi, said in an interview with journalists in Abuja.
He said they were ready for the reruns because all the non-sensitive materials had been sorted out and ready for distribution.
Oluwole-Uzzi said, “We have recruited ad hoc staff and training has commenced. The first set of training has been concluded in all the affected constituencies and senatorial districts. Non-sensitive materials have been sorted and they will arrive before the elections.”
