Cross River State Independent Electoral Commission (CROSIEC) is yet to announce a new date for the elections after announcing a postponement due to the Continuous Voters Registration exercise of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) earlier in the year.

However, the PDP’s document which carried a tight timetable put October 27 and 28 as dates for the return of intent forms.

October 30 and 31 are for appeals, while the screened applicants will be published on October 31.

November 1 and 2 was slated for sale of nomination forms while congress for ad-hoc delegates and councillorship primaries is scheduled for November 3 with appeal slated for November 4.

Chairmanship primaries was slated for November 6, with appeals slated for November 7 and re-run elections to hold on November 9.

However, a statement signed by the publicity  secretary and distributed later on  Friday said the earlier document was only a draft submitted to the party leadership in the state. 

The statement informed members that “Information making rounds of the Local Government elections is incorrect as the time-table displayed was a proposal to the leadership of the party which is yet to be approved.”

It also urge members to discontinue campaigns and gatherings as “CROSIEC, charged with conducting Local Government Elections has not come up with time-table to that effect.”
