SHOCKING - INEC de-register seventy-four(74) political party leaves 18 party | Full list

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) reduced the number of registered political parties on Thursday 6 February following their poor outing during the 2019 general elections and the previous polls in Nigeria.

Reports from Legit.ng claims that 18 political parties were confirmed by the electoral body after it de-registered 74 parties that participated in the last general election.

However,Some remarkable Nigerians have summoned for the de-registration of some parties to pave the way for a healthy political contest in the subsequent elections among the major political parties.

Also,One of the cause for the call was the fact that it offers an incentive for the ruling party to always control the election process and the result.


It is noted that the two-party system as practiced during the 1993 presidential election would be better for the political space in Nigeria now because politicians would be either in party A or in party B.

On Thursday, February 6, Mahmood Yakubu, who is the president of the electoral body, declared the deregistration of 74 parties at a press conference held in Abuja.



He stated the parties were axed because of their failure to meet a number of standards stipulated by using the constitution at some point of the elections.

Remember that the National Assembly lately amended the constitution to permit INEC deregister political parties on the following grounds:

* Breach of any of the requirements for registration as a party

* The failure to win at least 25% of the votes cast in one state in a presidential election or 25% of the votes cast in one local government area
* The failure to win at least one ward in a chairmanship election, one seat in the national or state assembly election or one seat in a councilorship election.



Yakubu said INEC had conducted an assessment of the political parties to assess compliance with their registration requirements.

In addition,he also said they had been measured on the basis of their results in both the general elections and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) area council elections, after which 75 were found not to have met the above requirements.
