On Wednesday, the National Chairman of the Inter-Party Advisory Council, IPAC, Muhammad Naldo, disclosed that about 25 political parties, under the aegis of the Inter-Party Advisory Council, IPAC, demanded amendments to the 2010 Electoral Act. They called for the scrapping of States Electoral Commission during the emergency meeting held at the national secretariat of the Accord Party in Abuja.

According to Naldo, “We have 25 political parties here endorsing this resolution. IPAC is calling on the constitutional and electoral committees to work assiduously with the National Assembly to ensure effective and prompt amendments to the 2010 Electoral Act before the 2019 general election.

“We are making these demands because we want our democracy to be well protected. All those grey areas that have been very controversial and creating confusion should be addressed, including party supremacy. Let political parties be responsible for the nomination of candidates for election.”
