The NRM EC boss, Dr.Tanga Odoi says 20 cases were withdrawn by members who had petitioned, while the candidature of 7 members has been nullified. Dr. Odoi says whoever is against the decision can go to court.
Among those whose candidature has been nullified is Nakifuma County MP Eng Kafeero Ssekitoleko.
