Reps set to deregister defaulting political parties – Ben Kalu
The House of Representatives Spokesperson, Ben Kalu has revealed the intention of the House to deregister political parties that fail to submit their audited accounts to the Independent National Electronic Commission (INEC) in the new electoral bill.
Kalu stated this on Monday while appearing on Sunrise Daily on Channels TV.
He noted that deregistration could be adopted as a punitive measure to ensure that political parties comply with the law that mandates political parties to submit their audited accounts to INEC.
“That is one of the things we will consider at the course of this amendment. This (deregister) is one of the things I will take back from this interaction. Deregulation of political parties could be a punitive measure, these are the things we are going to harvest from the public when we go for public engagement and advocacy on this particular bill before the public hearing.”
