Anambra State Association of Registered Voters (ASARVOTE) has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to delist some parties from participating in the November governorship election.
The demand was contained in a statement on Thursday by Jezie Ekejiuba and Sylvester Odife, President and Secretary respectively.
The organisation listed All Progressives Congress (APC), All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
ASARVOTE based its call on the multiple litigations against the candidates after the disputed primaries.
The party noted that INEC has been duly served these court orders and counter court orders.
“It is the inalienable right of every voter to know for certainty which candidate he or she intends to vote for and not confused as to the identity of the candidate in an election such as the Anambra state governorship poll.
“It is on this note that we hereby call on INEC to delist APGA, PDP and APC candidates from the Anambra State gubernatorial list because of the pending litigations.”
ASARVOTE advised the electoral umpire to established precedents of obeying court orders and counter orders and await Supreme Court’s final pronouncement as to the authentic candidates of APC, APGA and PDP.
The statement recalled this was the case in the Imo Senatorial election candidacy tussle between Senator Ifeanyi Araraume and the eventual winner, Senator Frank Ibezim.
