INEC TO CONDUCT SUPPLEMENTARY POLL IN THREE BAYELSA CONSTITUENCIES
Written by thereachfm on March 12, 2019
The Independent National Electoral Commission today announced that it would conduct a supplementary election in the three constituencies where elections were declared inconclusive in Saturday’s state House of Assembly election in Bayelsa State.
INEC Head of Department, Voter Education and Publicity, Wilfred Ifogah, who announced this in Yenagoa, listed the constituencies as Ogbia Constituency 11, Brass 1 and Southern-Ijaw IV.
So far, of the 24 seats in the Bayelsa House of Assembly, 21 have been fully declared with the People Democratic Party winning 17 seats, while the All Progressives Congress claimed 4.
Ifogah explained that the reason for declaring three constituencies inconclusive was due to failure to follow INEC regulations and guidelines for the conduct of the 2019 general elections.
