INEC Begins Countdown To 2019 Elections
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, says formal activities for the 2019 general elections will begin from tomorrow.
The INEC chairman, professor, Mahmud Yakubu stated this in Abuja during a presentation of certificates to the leadership of the twenty-three newly registered political parties.
He said the commission had received one hundred and forty-four applications from political associations, but only the twenty-three met the necessary requirement stipulated by the constitution.

He said all the new parties were free to field candidates for the 2019 general elections with exception to the next month governorship election in Osun state.
