The Electoral Commission(EC) says a number of legal matters need to be addressed in order to improve on the effectiveness of the electoral process to ensure the delivery of true, fair and effective elections in future, as stipulated in article 51 (6) (c) of the Constitution.
The comment comes from the EC’s report on the conduct of the 2018 Anse Boileau by-election which was published this week.
The 14-page report made a series of observations, proposals and recommendations which covered several issues including voting facilities; dispute mechanism; campaign expenditure; code of conduct, Seychelles Media Commission; voter education; voter register; and party liaison.
The report says that the EC should improve training of polling station staff and that the handbook for Electoral officers should be applicable to ensure consistency in the application of all procedures.
Most of the other observations were geared toward the commission itself with the report suggesting that it reviews its structure; clearly define its role and functions; improve its current public image and be more accessible to all political parties and other stakeholders.
