After holding a fruitful planning meeting with the Political Parties Registration Commission (PPRC), the national executive of the main opposition All People’s Congress (APC) has asked its legal team to return to the High Court today to pray for an extension to the proposed date for the conduct of an election of delegates before the party’s proposed emergency national delegates conference to adopt its draft constitution.

This disclosure was made to the press during an exclusive interview with the acting Public Sectary of the APC, Sidi Yayah Tunis.

According to Sidi Yayah Tunis, the party’s legal team expects the High Court to reply to its by issuing out a fresh date for the conduct of the said election, adding that the party decided to seek for an extension of the date after the proposed date previously slated by the court expired.

“We are doing all our best to ensure that we follow the court orders and not to violate the constitution,” he said, adding, “we are just waiting on the High Court to give us a date so that we can go ahead.”

Speaking further about the party’s plans, the acting APC mouthpiece said that once the draft new constitution has been approved by the delegates, the PPRC will look at it and then gazette it before it will finally come into effect.

Sidi Yayah Tunis continued that once this process has been concluded the party will then go into lower-level elections to elect new party executives at ward, constituency, district, regional and national levels, following which, he said, the party would be comfortably set to elect the 2023 presidential flagbearer.
