“We are determined that we would continue with our preparations for the 2023 general election. All the facilities would be rebuilt, materials will be replaced and alternatives will be found. However, should such attacks continue at the pace at which they are currently happening at the moment, the Commission may find it increasingly difficult to recover in time for the election.”
