Kaduna Govt Announces May 12 For LG Election
The Kaduna State Independent Electoral Commission (KADSIECOM) has fixed May 12 for the conduct of chairmanship and counsellorship election in the 23 local government areas of the state. Chairman of KADSIECOM, Dr Saratu Dikko-Audu, announced the date on Friday during a meeting with political parties and relevant stakeholders in the polls in Kaduna.
The election timetable was announced following the passage of the bill by the State House of Assembly to allow the use of electronic machines for voting during the election. The poll was earlier scheduled to hold in December 2017 but was cancelled indefinitely due to delay in the passage of the use of the electronic voting system by the state Assembly.
Dr Dikko-Audu also declared in a statement that by the announcement of the election timetable, political parties and candidates can commence electioneering campaigns. She said political parties would conduct their primaries for chairmanship and counsellorship positions from February 20 while the campaigns are expected to end at midnight of May 11.
