“We need to be IT (Information Technology) compliant and you recall that you use the card reader, we use electronic platform, they talk about server, think about transmitting results online and now we are thinking of electronic voting, tend to reduce inefficiency, weed out corruption and then assuage us in our integrity to run election.”
