Nigeria: Planning and Prospects for the 2011 Elections
Nigeria's next National Assembly, presidential and gubernatorial elections are fast approaching. The Independent National Electoral Commission has recently undergone change following constitutional amendments and the arrival of its new chair, Professor Attahiru Jega. The Commission is under considerable pressure to compile a new voters' register and train personnel before the elections, and hold more credible elections than those held in 2007.
At this meeting Professor Ibeanu will discuss INEC's progress and his thoughts on the prospects for Nigeria's next elections.
