Supreme Court upholds INEC’s deregistration of 74 political parties

THE Supreme Court has upheld the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to deregister 74 political parties.

In the judgment delivered today by Justice Chima Centus Nweze, the Supreme Court backed an earlier decision by the Court of Appeal to deregister the parties, which it affirmed was in line with the laws and in compliance with the extant provisions of the Constitution and Electoral Act.

The decision of INEC to deregister the parties stemmed from the fact that they did not have the mandatory offices in the 36 states of the federation including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and have not won a single seat in any election conducted since their formation.

The deregistered parties include Alliance For Democracy, Kowa Party, Democratic Alternative, Advanced Allied Party, All Blending Party, Advanced Congress of Democrats, Allied Congress Party of Nigeria, All Grand Alliance Party, We The People Party, National Conscience Party, Advanced Nigeria Democratic Party, and a host of others.
