Different factions had submitted lists of candidates that emerged from parallel primaries conducted in the state.

INEC had earlier published the list of candidates for the state and National Assembly elections in the state but now updated it.

The INEC official said: “There is an amended version of the list of PDP candidates vying for state and National Assembly elections in Edo on the INEC website, strictly based on court order.”
