In response, INEC clarified that it had received the application for certification from the Labour Party and actively corresponded with them. The commission informed the party that its legal department would assess the cost of certifying the requested 33 items. INEC emphasized its commitment to assembling the necessary documents for cost evaluation, facilitating a smooth process for payment.
The official statement from INEC, posted on X, read: “INEC acknowledges the receipt of the application for the certification of documents from the LP, and had held active correspondence with them, informing them that the legal department would estimate the cost of the certification of all 33 items they requested for. The Commission is assembling all the needed documents to assess the cost so that payment could be made.”
