According to the Commission, “This is to ensure that there is no communication gap that could create room for needless speculations and allegations. We hope the media would take advantage of this opportunity to better inform their listeners and viewers.”

The EC further urged the media to be “circumspect in their commentary and desist from publishing unverified and unconfirmed claims and allegations about the process.” This follows concerns about information dissemination on the day of voting. The Commission says it is ready for the exercise which comes off on December 7, 2016.
