Earlier. The Herald reported that the decision by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to delist 74 political parties has constitutional backing, a law professor has said.
Prof Nnamdi Obiaraeri, a former Dean of the Faculty of Law at the Imo State University, stated this on Friday.
He said the 1999 constitution as amended gave INEC the power to deregister any political party that was not performing.
“Expressly, section 225(A) of the 1999 Constitution as amended (introduced by the Fourth Alteration to the Constitution) empowers INEC to deregister political parties on any of the following seven grounds;
“Breach of any of the requirements for registration as a political party. Failure to win at least 25% of the votes cast in one State of the Federation in a Presidential election.
“Failure to win at least 25% of the votes cast in one Local Government Area of a State in a Governorship election. Failure to win at least one ward in a Chairmanship election.Failure to win at least one seat in the National Assembly election.
“Failure to win at least one seat in the State Assembly election or Failure to win at least one seat in a Councillorship election,” Obiaraeri told The Punch.
