(+) PARTY WITH CORPORATE MEMBERSHIP
Last month, it emerged Cord agreed to register a ‘corporate’ Cord Party, allowing affiliates to retain their individual identities, field candidates on their tickets in some areas and under the Cord ticket in others.

CP aims to strengthen Cord, keep it together. It is likely to resemble Narc, which removed Kanu from power in 2002.
