A federal high court sitting in Abuja has restrained the Independent National Electoral Commission from deregistering 31 political parties.

 

Justice Anwuli Chikere in her ruling on Monday says the electoral umpire failed to counter the interlocutory motion led by the Advanced Congress of Democrats(ACD).

 

Adding that the affected political parties had the legal right which must be protected.

 

On 6th February, INEC deregistered 74 political parties due to their performance during the 2019 general elections.
