REPS TO INVESTIGATE INEC OVER POLITICAL PARTIES
Written by thereachfm on September 25, 2019
The House of Representatives say it will investigate why the Independent National Electoral Commission has not deregistered political parties that are not winning elections in line with the Electoral Act, 2010.
The decision followed a motion moved by Francis Uduyok who said that INEC has failed to comply with the provisions of Section 78 sub-section (7) (ii) of the Electoral Act, 2010.
Uduyok said that there would not have been rising number of political parties if INEC had done its job.
The House mandated its committee on electoral matters to investigate the circumstances surrounding the situation.
The committee was given 4 weeks to conclude investigation and report back to the House.
