Conduct of Party primaries were supposed to be all concluded by end of October.

Conduct of Party Primaries

   

2nd August – 30th October, 2010

To enable Political Parties democratically nominate candidates for the elections as required by Section 85 of the Electoral Act.

We are yet to know who and who are running.

So is this timetable achievable?

The new INEC boss says a credible voters register will be in place before election time. I think Jega will certainly try to do a good Job. It remains to be seen wether the Presidency will remain totally neutral in letting INEC and Jega do their work.

True that, but like the other gentleman said, we should be worried about credible electoral registration

What I think we should be worried about is whether they have started the process for a CREDIBLE ELECTORAL REGISTER.

How a political party chooses its candidates or whether the time is long enough is a non-issue. Technically political parties can choose their candidates either by election, selection, appointment, nomination or self-nomination (unopposed candidate) depending on the party constitution. Some of these processes can take as little as 24h hours depending on how democratic the political party wants to appear to the public as well as factors like size of party and number of candidates running under such party.

Jega should start credible voter registration, that is a very fundamental feature of credible election.

It will be possible because, aside from the PDP , most parties will produce consensus/unopposed candidates. The AC has said that their own Presidential candidate will emerge before the end of July. I would imagine that this candidate would be produced as a consensus/unopposed candidate since the party has not announced its intentions to hold primaries.

I think common sense could answer it as well.

We are almost at the end of July

and that leave us 3 months to the end of October by which time they want the Primaries to have been concluded, how could that be possible.

Right now people are still making their intention known.

Some parties are still being registered.
