2019: INEC Announces Plan To Redesign Polling Units To Curb Vote Buying
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says the commission would redesign the structures of all polling units to curb vote buying during the 2019 general election.
“We are going to re-design our polling area in such a way that people cannot exhibit their ballot and show it to people in order to collect money.
“So those kind of structural re-design of the polling area is what we are going to do,” he said.
Lecky urged the media to expose political parties and candidates found engaging in vote buying during the election, to enable INEC prosecute the culprits.
“We need the media to help us reveal those who are buying votes and call them to order.
“We are not yet apprehending them, that is the work of the police, but we can provide information to prosecute them; the needed investigation will be done by the police,” he said.
