The Cross River State Independent Electoral Commission (CROSIEC) has fixed Saturday, June 17, 2016 for elections into the various council positions CrossRiverWatch authoritatively reports.
The Chairman of the Commission, Dr. Mike Ushie disclosed this to CrossRiverWatch in a very brief telephone interview this evening.
“Yes, i think we have published the notification and elections will hold on June 17th” Mike said before dropping the call.
However, CrossRiverWatch gathered from reliable sources that the commission will meet political parties by next week Thursday, with sales of nomination forms to start by April 10, 2017 and end May 10, 2017.
Nominations will close by June 2, 2017 after validation and verification of the nomination particulars which will last from April 17 to May 20, 2017.
