The National Assembly Joint Committee on Electoral Matters, with the support of Yiaga Africa and the European Union, specially invites citizens, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), political parties, civil society organizations, development partners, etc. to a Citizens’ Townhall on Electoral Matters.

  1. Unbundling the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)
  2. Mode of appointment of the INEC chairman and commissioners
  3. Voting rights and inclusivity
  4. Early voting and diaspora voting
  5. Voter registration and voter register
  6. Nomination of candidates
