IDEG wants EC to fix lights at all counting centres

Institute for Democratic Governance - Civic Forum Initiative (IDEG-CFI) have directed the Electoral Commission (EC) to ensure the provision of adequate lighting in all areas to ensure counting is done peacefully.

A release issued by the IDEG-CFI also appealed to voters to stay calm while the EC takes steps to resolve issues surrounding the biometric verification device which resulted in many not being able to cast their ballots on Friday.
