Presenting the bill at plenary on Wednesday, Waive lamented the gaps in the Electoral Act 2022, noting that an amendment of the law to pave the way “for the electronic transmission of results would help the nation’s democracy.”

“A review of the voter register every 10 years will be a good starting point,” he added.
