The communiqué states that, “the meeting considered the concern expressed by the generality of the citizens of Plateau State that the 21st, December, 2013 fixed for the Local Government Elections would hinder proper preparations for, as well as enjoyment of the Christmas celebrations.”

It also said the mourning mood in the State over the demise of the first civilian Governor of the State, Chief Solomon Lar, was also responsible for the shift t of the LGA polls.

The stakeholders called on the State Government to provide the necessary support to PLASIEC to ensure smooth and successful elections.
