The Labour Party in Edo State has that it will win a large chunk of the local government areas in the state local government elections.
The party also called for a credible and fair process from the Edo State Electoral Commission to create a level playing ground for all participating political parties.
A leader and chieftain of the party in Edo state, Dr. Oghogho Okundaye told journalists in Benin, that the party successfully had its primary election to pick its chairmanship candidates and it is banking on its organic following especially from the youth population to win elections.
He said, “Again, we have seen where the sitting party emerges winner in all local government areas in the state but we are not disturbed by that, we are relying on the organic network that we have as a party.
“It is no longer news that the Labour Party is well-liked and loved and the strength of the youth and the movement that the youths constitute in our politics today gives us the advantage that no other political party has. So, we are confident that we will be putting up a good showing in the forthcoming local government election.
“All that we are asking is that the process be fair. If the process is fair, given what Labour Party stands for, given what we’ve been able to demonstrate in the previous elections regardless of the outcome of the elections, we are confident that Labour Party will emerge the winner of many of the local government areas in this state,” he added.
