290 election OBSERVERS deployed to MONITOR ELECTIONS - ELOGNews 02:12
Tuesday, the 15th of January 2013 - The Election Observer Group (ELOG) says it has deployed 290 election observers to monitor the upcoming elections. ELOG says that most of the observers have been deployed to potential flashpoints.
ELOG also said that it is concerned about the outbreaks of violence in areas like Tana River and Northern Kenya even as the March 4th election date gets ever closer.
According to its website, ELOG is “a coalition of civil society, faith based organizations & other key stakeholders aimed at reclaiming & entrenching a culture of electoral integrity in Kenya…”
ELOG joins a steady chorus of civil society organizations like the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights (KNCHR) that have promised to monitor the upcoming elections. KNCHR last week said that it would even monitor the party primaries set for Thursday.
