Abstract

Liberal democratic theory emphasizes a direct relationship between the quality of the electoral administration process and the qualification of a regime as democratic; yet the issue of what constitutes a free and fair or credible election is very often taken for granted in studies on the election administration process in Nigeria. While some of the evaluative works on election administration in Nigeria focus essentially on isolated aspects of the electoral administration process, others fail to systematically and empirically establish the sequence in the activities involved in the electoral administration process. What are the constituting elements of election administration and how can the quality of the electoral administration process be determined? This paper examines these issues and proposes a comprehensive conceptual framework for the evaluation of election administration in Nigeria.
