INEC deregisters 74 political parties in Nigeria

A total of 74 parties have been deregistered by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), which means that they would not be participating in subsequent elections in the country.

The Commission’s Chairman, Yakubu Mommudu, made this known during a press briefing on Thursday at the Commission headquarters, stated that the action was in preparation for the coming 2023 general elections.

The Chairman further stated that the deregistration came after the poor performance of the parties in the last general elections.

According Mr Yakubu, the affected political parties did not satisfy the requirements of the Fourth Alteration to the Constitutional Electoral Act 2010 (as amended).

He further explained that the commission carried out an assessment of political parties to determine their compliance with the requirements for registration.
