Supreme Court order prevents 2019 LLG Election 

Com-PG-Mug-shot---09-March-2016

I wish to inform citizens, stakeholders, service providers and international partners that I have issued urgent instructions to all returning officers and assistant returning officers nationwide not to accept nominations from intending candidates when nominations officially opened at 4pm on Thursday, 25 April 2019.

 This was to comply with the Supreme Court order issued at around 10:30am on the day of official signing and issuing of 2019 LLG election writs restraining the Inter-Government Relations Minister Kevin Isifu from doing so.

 I was informed about the Supreme Court decision by our legal counsel, Robin Kawat of Kawat Lawyers after the official signing ceremony which took place half-an-hour before the High Court’s decision.

 This was after Minister Isifu signed and issued the writs at about 10.00am. The writs were to have effectively come into operation at 4pm on Thursday afternoon 25 April 2019. 

 To comply with the Supreme Court Order, I have issued an urgent circular instruction informing Director Election Operations and all the four Regional Operations Managers to inform all 20 Election Managers who are the Returning Officers not to accept nominations until the Supreme Court Order is set aside and an appeal is filed to clear the matter.

 As per the Court’s decision, the 2019 LLG elections are now effectively delayed indefinitely until further notice.

Electoral Commissioner
