EC sets Dec. 4 for continuation of Special Voting exercise


The Electoral Commission (EC) has set Sunday, December 4 for the continuation of the Special Voting exercise across the country. The decision was arrived at after the EC and political party representatives had an emergency Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting Thursday. This is to afford some security and media personnel who could not vote in the Thursday’s exercise because their names were not found on the electoral roll the opportunity to do so.




EXPLANATION: Investigations conducted by Penplusbytes fact-checking team reveals that the security personnel, media and EC officials who could not vote on Dec 1 special voting will be voting Sunday 4th December, 2016. In a telephone conversation with the Head of Communications, Mr. Eric Dzakpasu, the EC in an emergency Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) meeting with the political parties have set Sunday Dec. 4 for persons whose names were missing from the special voting register the opportunity to vote on Sunday.
