Edo 2020: Fourteen Political Parties has been Cleared By INEC

So far fourteen political parties has been cleared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to participate in the 2020 Edo State governorship election.

INEC released the list on Tuesday night following the primaries conducted by the fourteen political parties.

The Independent Electoral Commision stated through thier verified twitter page that the 14 political parties used the dedicated online portal of the commission to submit the list of candidates that emerged from their primaries.

INEC noted that 15 political parties expressed interest to participate in the election but only 14 used the online portal to submit candidates names.

The commission urged the public to screen the credentials of the candidates and file legal cases if they have reasonable grounds to believe that any information was wrong.

“We encourage members of the public to go through the nomination forms, affidavits and documents submitted by the parties on behalf of their candidates, as any person who has reasonable grounds to believe that any information in the affidavit or any document submitted by any candidate is false, may file a suit at the Federal High Court, High Court of a state or the FCT against such a candidate seeking a declaration that the information contained in the affidavit is false. The final list of duly nominated candidates will be published on August 13, 2020 after withdrawals by candidates and substitution by their political parties,” said Festus Okoye, National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee.

The names of the 14 political parties as released by INEC are: AA, ADC, ADP, APC, APGA, APM, APP, and LP.

Other are NNPP, NRM, PDP, SDP, YPP and ZLP.

But however the case, it is quite obvious that AAC political party was omited and that of APGA candidate is not the right candidate because Osaro/Onose was belived to have won APGA primaries and was duely presented with party nomination form.
