‘‘The Institute has reviewed its current electoral system by leveraging on information technology thus, optimizing the process and giving its targeted audience access to a transparent, accessible and cost effective electoral process for a democratic selection of its leaders.
‘‘Electronic voting has been considered to be an efficient and cost effective alternative to the current classic voting procedure which is expected to attract specific group of people, like young electors/voters to participate in the election. The proposed solution also aims at eradicating all known challenges and providing a complete solution with adequate level of security, anonymity, authentication, data security, tractability etc.
‘‘The system is designed for online voting from any part of the globe, hence, giving more members the power to choose even at the comfort of their homes and wherever possible,’’ the statement read in part.
