JUST IN: Electoral Act Amendment Bill passes second reading

57

The House of Representatives on Wednesday okayed the electoral act amendment bill for second reading.

The Bill titled “A Bill for an Act to amend the Electoral Act, 2022 and for Related Matters,” was sponsored by the member representing Ughelli North/Ughelli South/Udu Federal Constituency, Delta State, Mr Francis Waive.

Presenting the Bill, Waive lamented the gaps in the Electoral Act 2022, noting that an amendment of the law to pave the way “for the electronic transmission of results would help the nation’s democracy.”

He also advocated for a review of the voter register every decade.
