The national assembly has today passed the harmonized version of the Electoral Act Amendment Bill.

Both houses, the senate and house of representatives finally agreed on the harmonized version of the amendment on clause 84 which includes direct, indirect and consensus methods of nominating candidates by political parties in the country

According to the Senate President Ahmad Lawan, he said both chambers have agreed in the harmonized bill to give a clear and sufficient definition for each mode of primaries and how they are to be conducted.

He adds that for consensus methods, the two chambers have produced a very clear definition of how a consensus candidate will emerge.

The electoral bill was rejected and returned to the national assembly by the president last year due to the singular option of direct primaries for political parties.
