Upper House today endorsed the Elections Bill after lengthy debates which saw Parliament drop an election formula proposed by the National Independent Electoral Commission.
The Commission had proposed the Closed-List option under the Proportional Representation system.
Following public consultations by a Lower House elections ad-hoc committee late last year, the House adopted the First-Past-The-Post or Majoritarian Model.
The First-Past-The-Post election model is similar to one used in parts of Canada.
