This is the message from the Registrar of the Integrity Political Parties and Candidates Commission, Dr Alphonse Gelu.
Dr Gelu said it was normal practice for party executives to contest elections without resigning from the positions they were elected too by party members.
He said if they were unsuccessful, they would return and take up the position again.
“This behaviour has to stop,” says Gelu.
“The thing we want to instill in our political party systems is following proper procedures and this is one of the issues.”
