A total of 74 applications have been filed with the National Election Commission, to register new political parties in the country.
The time-frame granted to register new political parties concludes today. A spokesperson of the Commission informed NewsRadio that all applications will be scrutinised from tomorrow.
The appointment of new office bearers, financial records and electioneering activities are considered before recognising any political organisations in the country.
Following the declaration of an election, a new political party cannot register with the National Election Commission.
