Ondo states Resident Electoral Commissioner, Oluwatoyin Babalola, says only nineteen political parties have notified the commission of plans to conduct their primaries ahead of the governorship election scheduled for November 16.


Babalola, while speaking during a meeting with the representatives of political parties in Akure, urged all parties to adhere strictly to their guidelines, rules, and the regulations in their constitutions in the conduct of their primaries, scheduled for April 6 to 27.


According to her, the meeting, was an opportunity to engage with political parties on the upcoming party primaries, adding that the role of political parties in ensuring the success and integrity of the process cannot be overemphasized.


The commissioner advised parties to entrench the principle of internal democracy in the conduct of their primaries to reduce tension, division and pre – election cases that may arise after the conduct of the primaries.
