The Legal Sub-Committee

Chairman: Hon Justice G. U. Ononiba

A schedule of all the measures which, under the 2006 Electoral Law, the Independent National Election Commission is obliged to take before polling begins has already been prepared.

The Legal Sub-Committee will continue to exercise overall vigilance on the legality or otherwise of the electoral process.

It will receive reports on an on-going basis from field operatives in wards and local government areas.

It will lodge an appeal when irregularities are reported and it will launch a legal challenge against every breach of the law which is not rectified.

It has the duty of moni- toring public radio and television stations to ensure their compliance with the constitutional requirement to give equal coverage to all contestants with effect from November 6.
