By Hannah Nathan, Warri

A coalition of supporters of a majority rules system bunches has fervently dismissed the proposition by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to leave electronic transmission of results in the impending governorship political decision in Bayelsa State.
Ascending from a gathering in Abuja yesterday, the gathering said the arranged manual transmission of results being proposed was an effort to permit frantic legislators to control the desire of the Bayelsa electorate during the political decision.

INEC had on Wednesday expressed its arrangements to
physically communicate the consequences of the November 11 Bayelsa governorship political decision. This was spread through the State’s Inhabitant Appointive Chief (REC), Mr. Obo Effanga.

Yet, the CSOs which are a combination of gatherings focused on guaranteeing straightforwardness, decency, and responsibility in the constituent cycle, in a dispatch endorsed by Confidant Olufemi, Public Secretary, Mission for A majority rules system (Compact disc); and Companion Atani John, Niger Delta Popularity based Vanguard, said: “We accept that the uprightness and believability of any political race rely upon the straightforwardness of the electing system, including the precise and convenient transmission of results.

“Electronic transmission of results is an imperative part of guaranteeing the fairness and decency of decisions, and its relinquishment would sabotage the trust of the electorate, Nigerians and the worldwide local area in the electing system.

“We ask the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to reexamine its proposition and maintain the standards of straightforwardness and responsibility in the Bayelsa State Governorship Political race.”
