Electoral Act: INEC replies Buhari, backs amendments - OLOMSUPER

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has replied to President Muhammadu Buhari’s letter seeking explanation from it on some areas in the Electoral Act amendment bill transmitted to him by the National Assembly.

Daily Trust reports that President Buhari, who received the bill on November 19, has until December 19 to sign it or withhold his assent and communicate to the National Assembly his feelings and comments about the bill.

If after 30 days the president refuses to sign the bill and the National Assembly is not in support of the president’s amendments or reservation, the Senate and the House of Representatives can recall the bill and pass it.
