IEBCThe Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (Cord) will on Monday present a petition to Parliament for the removal of nine IEBC Commissioners from office.

A statement sent to newsrooms said:

“This unprecedented event will be held today (Monday) at 2:15pm at the National Assembly (Main Parliament buildings).”

Cord has been categorical that they will not be part of another election presided over by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.


Last week, Kisumu Senator Anyang’ Nyong’o said: “I don’t think our elections should be run by a criminal organisation.”

Members of the Parliamentary Public Investment Committee also clashed over whether the IEBC should be disbanded.

Leaders from Jubilee are however against any move by the opposition against the polls body and termed the latest calls for removal of the team as a ‘smear campaign’.

A recording recently emerged in which an electoral commission official was allegedly heard casting doubts on the credibility of last year’s General Election.
