The Independent National Electoral Commission today, Tuesday, reopened the electoral process in Rivers State, with collation of results from 17 Local Government Areas for the governorship and state parliamentary elections.

The commission had last month suspended the process, citing reports of disruptions and violence that affected voting and collation of results.

Rivers State has 23 LGAs, but the commission says only 17 have results ready.

The outcome of the ongoing exercise in terms of margin of lead would determine if a supplementary election would hold in other LGAs.

It is mainly a battle between PDP and AAC, backed by the APC.

Here are updates of the collation.
