PEOPLES Redemption Party (PRP), Delta State Chapter, has said its position on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Delta State Chapter, seeking the disqualification of all the nominated candidates of the Accord Party (AP), Labour Party (LP) and the All Progressive Congress (APC), in Delta State from the March 28, 2015 and coming Saturday elections still stands.

Justice  Olatoregun- Ishola  has adjourned  the matter to  17th April 2015 after the Governorship election which comes up on April 11, 2015.

Comrade Igbini Emmanuel, PRP, Delta State Chairman and Comfort Obi, State Publicity Secretary, said the section 85(1) of the Electoral Act is not a necessary and sufficient ground for justifiable disqualification of candidates nominated by political parties, worse of all, it is not a ground for non-bonafide member of a political party to seek legal action against the nomination of a member of different political party.
