The general election will take place in February 2015.

Olisa Metuh, the party`s National Publicity Secretary, said in Abuja that the primaries for the National Assembly would hold on 22 November, adding that the dates were proposed by the party`s National Working Committee (NWC).

According to him, the dates were proposals that were subject to the approval of the party`s National Executive Committee (NEC) scheduled to meet on Sept. 18.

“ We expect all public servants, government appointees and elected party officials who are interested in contesting any position to resign their appointments seven days before the commencement of the ward congress election,’’ he said.

NAN, however, learnt from the party’s national headquarters that sales of nomination and expression of interest forms for various elective offices would be between October 27 and 28.
