We are yet to fix date for supplementary NASS elections – INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that it was yet to fix a date for supplementary National Assembly elections in about 15 States.

The Commission said what will be conducted with State Assembly and Governorship elections tomorrow are one senatorial election in Enugu and one House of Representatives poll in Edo State.

National Commissioner, Information and Voter Education, Barrister Festus Okoye in a statement explained these two elections are not supplementary but suspended elections.

The senatorial election for Enugu East was suspended because of death of the candidate of the Labour Party in accordance with the provisions of the Electoral Act while the election into the Esan Central/Esan West/Igueben was suspended because of the missing logo of one of the parties.

Okoye said the Commission will fix the date for the conduct of supplementary elections in areas where such are to be conducted after the governorship and state Houses of Assembly election.
