EC chief wants to re-introduce clauses for equality in electoral boundaries

He said he would propose for the reinstatement of Article 116 to of the Federal Constitution, a safeguard put in place in 1957 which provides for equal distribution in terms of population numbers as well as racial makeup to reflect the Federation as much as possible. “Clause four provides that the margin of disparity should be 15 per cent. If we decide to reinstate that, we need to undertake a deeper analysis as to how many the margin of disparity should be - whether its 15 or 10 per cent. We need to because I don’t like unilateral decisions.
