BENIN ANNOUNCES THAT IT WILL COMPUTERISE ELECTORAL LIST BY 2006
Benin has announced that it wants to computerise its electoral list before Presidential elections in 2006. The "Liste Electorale permanente informatisée (Lepi)" has thus far remained something of a mirage for Beninois,
Minister responsible Alain Adihou said he would put considerable effort into advancing the process. In front of an extraordinary session before parliamentary deputies he said that the new programme to complete the task was beginning. However the "political class" of Benin are very uncertain about the implications of the completion of the task as it will ensure a high level of transparency in elections and help combat fraud.
