Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chaired by Wafula Chebukati held a meeting on Monday. The four IEBC commissioners were part of the meeting.
All the commissioners including the four who split were present. They had to set aside their differences for a discussion.
The meeting was meant to discuss with the contenders on suspension of elections. The postponement happened in various parts of the country due to a mix up of ballot papers while others was due to chaos and lack of credibility of the IEBC officials.
Gubernatorial seats were suspended in Mombasa and Kakamega. On the constituency level seats; Pokot South, Rongai, Kacheliba, Kitui Rural, Kwa Njenga and Nyaki West were suspended.
Despite some of these areas were unable to participate in elections, majority of the parts in the country is through with elections and winners have already been announced. The others are expected to resume their elections tomorrow, Tuesday.
The four commissioners (majority) who split away are: Juliana Cherera, Justus Nyang’aya, Irene Masit and Francis Wanderi.
The four IEBC commissioners disagreed with the Chair of IEBC and two other commissioners during the announcement of the presidential results claiming that the commission was opaque and limited their access in the final face of the tallying process.
Led by the vice chairperson Julian Cherera, the four IEBC commissioners claimed that the results used by Chebukati to declare William Ruto as the president elect were not verified and contained errors.
The four IEBC commissioners went on accusing Chebukati for not outlining the total number of voters that tool part in the elections. They said that totality is most essential ingredient the results missed.
Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance on the other hand claimed following the spit of the commissioners, that they suspect the process the commission used in tallying the results.
Lead by presidential candidate Raila Odinga, the Azimio coalition is expected to hand in their petition to court by 2 pm on Monday 22.
