Nigerian senators on Thursday empowered the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and the National Assembly to determine the use of electronic transmission in an election.

52 senators voted in favour of granting the powers to the NCC and NASS while 28 voted against it. A total of 28 senators were absent during the voting process.

Section 50(2) of the passed Electoral Act say that Independent National Electoral Commission may electronically transmit results if the NCC certifies that the mode of transmission is safe and secure. The National Assembly must also concur to the use, the proposal stated.

This move by the Senate has denied Nigeria’s electoral commission (INEC) the power to transmit results of elections electronically, while NCC is given the power to decide.
In OTHER WORDS, NCC will determine if INEC will transmit results of the elections electronically or not.
