Case seeking to declare IEBC illegally constituted dismissed - 8 months ago, 10 Aug 14:19

Sam Kiplagat

The High Court has dismissed a petition seeking to declare the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) illegally composed following the resignation of four commissioners.

Justice Wilfrida Okwany said a vacancy in the commission does not invalidate its composition.

She further said nothing bars the commission from conducting the by-elections.

The judge said the conduct of an election or a by-election is not a matter that arises out of the resolutions or decisions made by the commission at a meeting.

Instead, it is dictated by the operation of the law following a vacancy in the elective positions, which are subject of the election of by-election, she said.

IEBC commissioner Roselyn Akombe says repeat election as planned cannot meet the basic expectations of a credible election. Adds that she went to New York fearing for her life.
