INEC to conduct supplementary election in 3 Bayelsa Constituencies
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Tuesday announced that it would conduct a supplementary election in the three constituencies that elections were declared inconclusive in Saturday’s state house of assembly election in Bayelsa.
Wilfred Ifogah, INEC Head of Department, Voter Education and Publicity, who announced this in Yenagoa, listed the constituencies as Ogbia Constituency 11, Brass 1 and Southern-Ijaw IV.
Mr Ifogah explained that the reason for declaring three constituencies inconclusive was due to failure to follow INEC regulations and guidelines for the conduct of the 2019 general elections.
He said the commission would inform stakeholders of the new date to conduct the supplementary election.
