President Muhammadu Buhari has begun the process of reforming the nation’s electoral laws in order to bring them into conformity with best global electoral practises, ThisDay reports.

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minster of Justice, Alhaji Abubakar Malami as quoted saying on Tuesday in Abuja that President Buhari’s administration has started consultations with the leadership of the National Assembly and the judiciary to identify the electoral laws that need to be reformed.

“I have begun consultations with the leadership of the National Assembly and the judiciary to identify key laws and priority areas for reform. Our priority areas will be clearly outlined in our justice sector reform that we will propose to the National Assembly and align it with their agenda in order to achieve reform within the tenure of this administration,” he told participants at the Nigerian Civil Society Situations Room’s Stakeholders Forum on Elections in Abuja.

Malami’s revelation of the presidential reform initiative incidentally coincides with the dilemma of the Independent National Electoral Commission over the inconclusive rerun elections held in Rivers State on March 19, 2016.
