PostSubject: Only INEC can monitor election– Jega   2015-03-20, 11:05

The Chairman of the Independent
National Electoral Commission, Prof.
Attahiru Jega, says only INEC has the
power to monitor elections.
Jega said this while addressing
election observers in Abuja on
Thursday.
He also said INEC had distributed 81
per cent of Permanent Voter Cards.
He said an election monitor is part
of the administration of the
election while an observer has no
oversight function. He, therefore,
warned observers to understand
electoral laws properly before
going to the field.
He said, “An election monitor is an
integral part of the election
management structure and has a
role in the administration of the
election. In Nigeria, only INEC and
its duly authorised personnel are
empowered to monitor elections.
An observer on the other hand does
not have any role in the
administration of the election nor
any control or oversight functions.
“An election monitor exercises
some level of lawful authority over
the conduct of elections as well as
over officials involved; an observer
has no such powers. In Nigeria, a
monitor must be duly authorised
personnel of the INEC; an observer
is independent and reports only to
his or her organisation.
“A monitor can issue instructions
and take decisions on behalf of INEC
and to that extent would ordinarily
possess a greater technical
knowledge of the election process
than an observer. To enable them
fulfil their functions effectively,
INEC is responsible for training
election monitors on election
administration. The training of
election observers is the
responsibility of the organisations
that deploy them.
“The roles, powers and functions of
monitors are created and regulated
and the authority so exercised is
clearly spelt out. It is important to
clarify these because observers in
the past sometimes overreach the
limits of our conception of
observation, which often results in
tension and disagreements.”
Jega said the last six weeks had
given INEC the opportunity to put
its house in order and expected
things to go smoothly on election
day.
The INEC boss urged the observers
to ensure that their reports are
based on evidence and not hearsay
Jega said, “In their conduct,
observers are expected to declare
any conflict of interest, be impartial
and unobtrusive, ensure that their
reports and conclusions are
evidence-based, eschew
prejudgment of the process, always
carry proper identification, be
careful about comments in the
media, be prudent in receiving gifts
and favours and avoid involvement
in disputes.”
