APC can’t decide internal democracy for other parties: PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says no political party has the right to impose its processes on another.

In a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Tuesday in Abuja, it said PDP and other political parties had the right to decide which form of primary they wished to adopt.

The country’s main opposition party explained that it was shocked over the passage of harmonised electoral act amendment bill, which among other things, provides for direct primaries for nomination of candidates for elections by political parties.

“Our party holds that it is the inalienable right of each political party, within the context of our constitutional democracy, to decide its form of internal democratic practices,” the statement noted.

According to PDP, that includes the processes of nominating its candidates for elections at any level.

The PDP also believes that no political party should force its processes on other parties regarding the direct primaries amendment, “a practice of the All Progressives Congress (APC), seeks to achieve.”

It, however, noted that the PDP would, within the next 48 hours, make its final decision in respect of the amendment known.
