INEC Announces Plans For Re-Run And Bye-Elections In February 2024

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has disclosed its intention to conduct re-run and bye-elections nationwide in February 2024 to address existing vacancies in both state and federal legislatures.

INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, conveyed this information during a meeting with political party leaders in Abuja on Monday, in preparation for the upcoming elections.

Re-run elections will involve only the parties and candidates that participated in the previous general election unless a party seeks to replace a deceased candidate, In contrast, bye-elections represent fresh elections.

Yakubu revealed that, following legal proceedings, the courts directed the commission to conduct re-run elections in 34 federal and state constituencies, comprising one Senate seat, 11 federal constituencies, and 22 state constituencies.

He emphasized that both types of elections would take place on the same day, requiring political parties to conduct new primaries within the stipulated timeframe.
