No Clause For Electronic Transmission Of Results In Electoral Act – Tribunal

Tinubu Frowns On PDP's Appeal For Tribunal's Live Coverage

According to the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal, the Electoral Act 2022 does not include a required provision for electronic transmission of election results.

The five-member panel, led by Justice Haruna Tsammani, emphasized that the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System is the only technological need specified for use by the Independent National Electoral Commission during elections.

In response to claims of non-compliance with the Electoral Act, INEC laws, and Guidelines, Justice Tsammani stated that there is no requirement in the laws for BVAS to electronically send polling unit results.

“There is no provision for the electronic transmission of election results in the Electoral Act 2022. It is at best optional,” he said.
