The Decentralisation of PVC Distribution

The Independent National Electoral Commission’s decision last week to decentralise the distribution of the permanent voter cards to the ward level is a step in the right direction. It will help to eliminate the chaotic scenes at the local government headquarters where the distribution process had continued since the end of distribution at the polling unit level.

Also commendable is the commission’s decision to establish a monitoring mechanism to ensure that its regulations on the timing and mode of the distribution exercise are adhered to by its officers.

Any legitimate measure aimed at easing the process of voter registration and collection of the PVCs is a great boost to the democratic process.
