The Rivers State Rerun Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja is expected to hold its inaugural sitting today.
Twelve petitions arising from the March 19th rerun election in Rivers State are currently before the tribunal filed by candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party and the All Progressives Congress.
The petitions are challenging nine seats in the Rivers State House of Assembly and three seats in the House of Representatives.
The tribunal is also expected to commence pre-trial today.
It would be recalled that the Rivers State Rerun Election Petition Tribunal was relocated from Port-Harcourt to Abuja for security reasons.
