INEC releases additional guidelines for future elections

28 April 2016, 20:06

Abuja - The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has released additional guidelines to the existing 2015 Guidelines and Regulations for the conduct of elections in the country.

It said this was done after it had approved the Continuous Accreditation and Voting Procedure at elections, a method used during the rerun elections across the country.

This information was contained in the commission’s bulletin released in Abuja on Thursday.

The commission however stressed that all procedures specified in the Guidelines and Regulations for the Conduct of the 2015 General Elections remain.

It said that voting shall be by continuous accreditation and voting system and that accreditation process shall comprise authentication and verification of voters using the Smart Card Reader.
