Thirdway Alliance Party leader Ekuru Aukot is calling for the resignation of chairman of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission Chairman Wafula Chebukati for failing to clear him and other candidates based on unconstitutional regulations.
Ekuru Aukot in a statement has stated that Wafula Chebukati did not interpret the law well and therefore need to resign office for first denying him the ticket to vie for the presidency.
“While we advised the chairman through a letter dated June 5,2022, that the Regulation 18 2C was unconstitutional and ought to be discarded, the chairman was unable to interpret the law correctly and proceeded to deny us clearance and several other candidates based on the unconstitutional regulation.” read a statement that was later declared unconstitutional by Justice Anthony Mrima.
The Thirdway Alliance party has also raised concerns over the 2017 election calling for it to be nullified.
Aukot was disqualified after failing to provide signatures and copies of national identity cards of 48,000 registered voters who endorsed his presidential bid and that his papers were not stamped by the universities, he had got them from.
