“The Electoral Commission reiterated its independence saying “as stated in Articles 46 of the 1992 Constitution, the EC will like to reiterate that it shall not be subject to the direction or control of any person or authority in the performance of its functions except as provided for in the constitution or any other law consistent with it.”
