INEC to Fix Dates for Rerun Elections in Imo, Kogi, Kano Today

30 June 2016 National

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) could fix dates for suspended rerun elections in Rivers, Imo, Kogi and Kano states on Thursday (today).

The Chairman of INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, who spoke at the opening of the second quarterly meeting with Resident Electoral Commissioners in Abuja, said the commission was consulting with critical stakeholders, leaders of political parties and security agencies, in the affected states.

He explained that the commission had concluded the Continuous Voter Registration in the two states, where he said no fewer than 100,000 people were registered.

Yakubu stated that the commission was also expected to have a meeting with leaders of political parties before arriving at the dates for the rerun elections as the reruns were ordered by courts, but were suspended by the commission due to outbreak of violence.

He said the commission was presently doing de-duplication to ensure that there were no multiple registrants before distributing permanent voter’s card and also gave the assurance that the reruns in the four states would be conducted before July 31.
