The Nigerian Senate has re-amended for a third time, the Electoral Act, 2022, to include provisions which enable statutory delegates to vote at the congresses or conventions of political parties.

This followed the expeditious consideration of a bill during plenary which scaled first, second and third readings, respectively, and was passed during plenary by the chamber after consideration by the Committee of the Whole.

Those identified as ‘statutory delegates’ include the President, Vice President, Members of the National Assembly, Governors and their deputies, Members of the State Houses of Assembly, Chairmen of Councils, Councillors, National Working Committee of political parties, amongst others.

The bill to amend the 2022 Electoral Act Number thirteen was sponsored by the Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege.
