The Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission (LASIEC) will announce results of the July 22 local government election at the collation centres, its Chairman, Justice Ayotunde Phillips (retd) has said.

Justice Phillips told reporters at the weekend that the commission would follow the law on the announcement of results.

She advised political parties to abide by the LASIEC’s rules on submission of candidates’ list, or face the music.

“Rules are set to smoothen the process. Laws are to be obeyed. Any party that runs foul of our law would be sanctioned. The commission under my watch believes in the rule of law and due process and will not under any guise interfere in the internal affairs of parties,” she said.

Justice Phillips said there would be adequate security at every polling unit to ensure peace.

“I urge all eligible voters to participate in the election. It is when they participate that they can elect the right leaders,” she said.

The LASIEC chief said only those whose names appeared on the list with commission would be allowed to vote.

The commission, she said, had begun the screening of candidates, adding that the exercise will end on Friday.

Phillips said the list of those qualified and those disqualified would be displayed on July 14.

Parties, she said, could still substitute disqualified candidates after the display of the list.
