The Peoples Democratic Party says the harmonized electoral act amendment bill, which among other
things, provided for direct primaries for nomination of candidates for
elections by political parties is not acceptable to it.
A statement from the party’s spokesperson Kola Ologbondiyan holds that it is the inalienable right of each political
party, within the context of the constitutional democracy, to decide its
form of internal democratic practices including the processes of
nominating its candidates for elections at any level.
It adds that the PDP believes that no political party should force its own
processes on any other political party.
The PDP statement further says shall, within the next 48 hours, make its
final decision in respect of the amendment known.
