Senate rejects Interim National Government idea

The Senate has rejected the call for Interim National Government. In a speech welcoming Senators back from their short break, the Senate President, Senator David Mark said, those suggesting the idea “are embarking on exercise in futility.” According to him, “ING is strange to the 1999 Constitution as amended.”

The Senate President urged INEC to continue to prepare for a free, fair and transparent election; and asked all stakeholders to give the Commission all necessary assistance.

The Senators at plenary, also decided to invite the Chairman of INEC, Professor Jega to brief the distinguished Senators on preparation for 2015 election, the permanent voters card and card readers, today at 11am.

Although the Senators agreed to invite the Security Chiefs to brief the Senators on reasons for their inability to provide security during the botched February election, they decided to first of all liaise with INEC.
