The House of Representatives on Thursday passed the Electoral Act (Amendment) Bill.
The bill was passed after the removal of clause (84) requiring political parties to only select candidates through direct primaries.
President Muhammadu Buhari had refused to assent the electoral bill in 2021 over the clause which restricted political parties to direct primaries as only means of determining candidates for electoral position.
The lower chamber, like the senate also removed the compulsory direct primary clause.
The Senate had on Wednesday included the consensus mode of primary in the Electoral Act (Amendment) Bill as suggested by the President, Muhammadu Buhari.
The House gave options of parties adopting direct or indirect primaries, but the Senate included direct and indirect primaries as well as the consensus mode as suggested by the President during his interview with Channels Television a few weeks ago.
