Following the de-registration of 74 political parties in Nigeria, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday immediately released the list of existing political parties in the country.

TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports Chairman of INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu at a press conference in Abuja had said the deregistered parties failed to meet constitutional requirements that determine the continuous existence of political parties in the country.

Consequently, the Commission determined that sixteen (16) political parties have fulfilled the requirements for existence based on Section 225A of the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

Meanwhile, INEC said seventy-five (75) political parties actually did not satisfy the requirements of the Fourth Alteration to the Constitution.

However, according to the INEC, one of the political parties, the Action Peoples Party (APP) filed a suit in court and obtained an order restraining the Commission from deregistering it.

Consequently, the party remains registered pending the determination of the case by the court, INEC stated.

Also, INEC said the new political party, Boot Party (BP), registered by court order after the 2019 general election will also continue to exist.

With this development, Nigeria now has eighteen (18) registered political parties.

The parties are:

  1. A – Accord Party
  2. AA – Action Alliance
  3. AAC – African Action Congress
  4. ADC – African Democratic Congress
  5. ADP – African Democratic Party
