IEBC’s WAFULA CHEBUKATI proposes radical changes for the 2022 elections as he finally agrees with RAILA - RUTO will be mad with him

Monday February 11, 2019 - The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has called for major changes about the conduct of the 2022 polls.

The Wafula Chebukati-led commission concurred with NASA leader, Raila Odinga, noting that there was need for a referendum to change laws governing elections.

He noted that an amendment to the law was now imminent whether or not there is some opposition to the move.

According to a draft post-election evaluation report of the 2017 polls expected to be released on Tuesday,  IEBC wants the Presidential and Parliamentary elections held at the same time, while the vote for Governors and ward representatives to be pushed to a different date.

According to the commission's proposal, conducting elections in one day resulted in fatigue among electoral officials, which could result in them making errors.

Besides, IEBC also proposes a change in the Constitution to realign the term of County Assemblies with that of the other elective seats “for legal clarity”.

The move spells doom for Deputy President William Ruto and his supporters who have opposed the referendum from the onset.
