REPS TO AMEND ELECTORAL LAW OVER INCONCLUSIVE ELECTIONS
Written by thereachfm on March 14, 2019
The House of Representatives will set up a Committee to look into the issues leading to the declaration of inconclusive election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) with the view of ascertaining areas to be amended in the Electoral Act.
This followed the adoption of a motion of urgent national importance by Sunday Karimi (PDP, Kogi) who said INEC does not possess the powers to declare elections inconclusive.
However, the House Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila and those who spoke against the motion urged their colleagues to be mindful of the fact that INEC was empowered by law to declare elections inconclusive, an action backed by the pronouncement of the Supreme Court.
