Abuja - A group of ten registered political parties has kicked against the postponement of the general elections, reports New Telegraph.
The parties alleged that characters that scuttled the June 12, 1993 general election have coalesced again and are about to do the same thing for their selfish ends.
The political parties are the Peoples Democratic Movement (PDM), KOWA Party, the HDP, Accord Party, Mega Progressive Peoples Party, Social Democratic Party, United Peoples Party and the Democratic Peoples Party. Also read: 16 political parties call for postponement of elections
Speaking on behalf of the other parties, National Chairman of PDM, Bashir Yusuf Ibrahim, said the call for the postponement of the general elections has nothing to do with the challenge of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct the election or the pace of distribution and collection of Permanent Voters Card (PVCs).
He accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of orchestrating the call for the postponement out of fear of losing power for the first time since 1999.
