The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said it would consult political stakeholders in Rivers on logistics for repeat of legislative re-run elections in areas the exercise was cancelled on March 19.
Deputy Director of Voter Education and Publicity in the commission, Mr Nick Dazang, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Abuja.
Dazing said that the consultation would commence soon, because INEC was eager to ensure that the elections were concluded.
“We stated it clearly in our previous statement on Friday that we will not announce new date for the election until we have engaged with stakeholders and that engagement has not taken place.
“It is after the engagement that INEC will fix a date for the conclusion of the election. We cannot just go back to Rivers state like that, given what happened during the election.
“Engagement at the level of stakeholders will start soon,” he said, adding that the date for the consultation would be made public when fixed.
Dazang also told NAN that the commission would not release any other results from the March 19 re-run until the elections were concluded.
