The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has fixed November 10 for the bye-election of the Ikom (2) constituency seat in the Cross-River State House of Assembly, following the death of the lawmaker representing the constituency.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Dr. Frankland Briyai, disclosed this on Thursday at a meeting of stakeholders drawn from all political parties, at the INEC office in Calabar, the state capital.
He assured the different parties of a smooth, free and fair exercise.
According to him, the election would allow a level playing field for all parties and their candidates.
Briyai also used the opportunity to warn parties and their agents against vote buying.
