INEC To Release Preliminary Voters Register Next Week
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has announced that it will display the preliminary voters’ register at registration centres next week.
An update at the commission’s headquarters said this was to enable the public scrutinise the register before the printing of Permanent Voters’ Cards, PVCs.
The document will be on display for seven days.
The notice said the preliminary register “will contain the names of those who registered newly or transferred their votes to new areas” since the Continuous Voter Registration, CVR, exercise, began on April 27 at local council offices, nationwide.
It noted that the CVR is to give opportunity to “those who have turned 18 years of age after the last exercise; those who could not register during the last general registration exercise; those seeking transfer to new locations; and registered voters who have TVCs but names not on Register of Voters”.
INEC recalled that 23,643,479 voters were accredited for the 2015 Presidential and National Assembly polls.
Meanwhile, INEC, on Thursday said it has informed Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye about the process of his recall.
The electoral body disclosed that the decision to notify the Senator of the demand of his people was taken at its meeting held in Abuja.
