The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has decried over the one million naira fine provided in the Constitution to punish electoral malpractices by political parties.

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has again expressed displeasure over litigations, particularly the conflicting orders emanating from courts of coordinate jurisdiction.

INEC National Chairman, Mahmoud Yakubu made this known at the commission’s quarterly meeting with leaders of political parties in Abuja, adding that the conflicting orders were making the work of the commission difficult. He also noted that by the same token, the chairmen and leaders of political parties had a role to play.

In his remarks, chairman Inter-party Advisory Council, IPAC Leonard Nzenwa, also expressed concern on the conflicting court Judgments, noting that court of competent jurisdiction in the country on political matters had become embarrassing and theatrical.

He however, decried the recent rejection of electronic transmission of results by the national assembly, while calling on all stakeholders to still persuade their elected representatives to listen to the voice of the people and support the electronic transfer of election results.
