IEBC exits from Election preparedness team


The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) yesterday announced its withdrawal from the election preparedness team.

In a statement written to PS Karanja Kibicho, dated Monday, November 29, IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati cited the need for independence as the main reason the commission has opted to leave the National Multi-Sectoral Consultative Forum (NMSCF) on Election Preparedness and the Technical Working Committee (TWC) on Election Preparedness.

The chairperson said a number of the terms of reference of the NMSCF and TWC have a net effect of violating the Constitution by purporting to direct the Commission on how to discharge its mandate, contrary to provisions of the Constitution.
