Reasons Why INEC de-registers 74 political parties to 18

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has de-registered 74 political parties leaving just 18 others,the commission chairman,Mahmood Yakubu made the announcement at a press conference in Abuja.

According to the electoral umpire, the move is in line with Section 225A of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) which empowers INEC to de-register political parties based on the following reasons:

Tthe parties, since their existence, did not win one local government of a state in a governorship election.

The deregistered parties, according to INEC also failed to win at least one ward in the chairmanship elections in local governments.

Some also failed to win one seat in the National or State House of Assembly election or one seat In a Councillorshlp election since they were registered.
