INEC assures of level playing field in Delta by-election
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), yesterday, assured of fairness to all parties participating in the House of Assembly by-election for Isoko South 1 Constituency of Delta State.
National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, who gave the assurance, revealed that 12 political parties conducted primaries and nominated candidates for the election.
Following the death of Kenneth Odafe Ogba of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in June, the commission fixed September 11, 2021 for the poll.
Okoye said personal particulars of one female and 11 male candidates have been published in the constituency, as required by law, adding that the list had also been uploaded on INEC’s website and social media platforms for public information.
“While we reassure all political parties of a level playing field, the commission expects parties and candidates to conduct their electioneering campaigns and elections day activities with civility and decorum consistent with the provisions of the law,” he stressed.
