Less than 30% of presidential results available as INEC begins upload on portal



The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has so far uploaded less than 30 percent of presidential election results to its results viewing portal (IReV).


As of Sunday afternoon, out of the more than 176,8460 polling units where results are to be uploaded, only 41,649 have been uploaded to the portal.


The IReV portal was part of the technologies introduced by the commission to improve the transparency of the electoral process.


Although voting ended in some places on Saturday, the portal was inactive for a long time, raising concerns from civil society and observer groups.


In a statement on Sunday, YIAGA Africa urged INEC to be transparent and communicate the challenges faced during the deployment of the IReV.


Samson Itodo,  executive director of YIAGA Africa, said the failure of the IReV system “undermines public confidence in the process”.


“Yiaga Africa expressed concerns about the unexplained delay in uploading polling unit results for the presidential election on the INEC Election Results Viewing Portal (IReV),” the statement reads.


 “As of 10 pm on election day, results for the Presidential election were not uploaded on the INEC portal after voting and counting ended in several polling units. At 9:00 am on 26th February, INEC uploaded only 25,503 results for the Presidential elections on the INEC portal.


“The delay in uploading the results undermines public confidence in the results transmission process as it deviates from the guidelines for the elections and it failed to meet citizens’ expectations.”
