INEC May Need To Reprint Ballot Papers

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) claims that a political party was not listed among the duly registered parties by the commission. And in view of this, there will be need for repring of ballot papers in order to have the forthcoming election free and fair enough.

This follows the ruling of a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja which ordered INEC to include the Young Democratic Party (YDP) among duly registered  political parties. Justice Ahmed Mohammed made the order in his judgment on the suit filed by the party, challenging its refusal of registration by INEC.

Justice Mohammed said that The Young Democratic Party (YDP) was believed to have registered when INEC refuse to inform political association as at then‎ of its decision not to register it as a political party within 30 days of which application was recieved, as required under Section 78 (4) of the Electoral Act, 2010‎.

INEC was said to have received the association’s application on April 1, 2014 but only informed the applicant of its decision not to include it on September 15, 2014 registeration. (National Mirror)
