ABUJA?FIFTEEN political parties and five presidential candidates participating in the forth coming elections, yesterday, opposed the proposed use of card readers in accrediting voters by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in the elections.
The aggrieved parties and candidates, said the use of the electronic devices would not only be against the 19Card-Readers199 Constitution but also the 2010 Electoral Act (As amended) which proscribed electronic voting in the country.
They, therefore, threatened not to participate in the elections if the INEC insists on using card readers, saying they ?observed some obvious but dangerous developments in the proposed use of card readers? by the commission for the conduct of the elections.
At a press conference in Abuja, the parties and candidates, speaking through spokesperson and Acting National Chairman of Advanced Congress of Democrats, ACD, Dr Onwubuya Breakforth, said ?these important observation, if not well considered by the commission, has the propensity to derail the 2015 polls.?
