Supreme Court clear on IEBC’S role in fresh poll

Daily Nation (Kenya) - - LETTERS -

The Supreme Court, while or­der­ing a fresh pres­i­den­tial election, did not say it must be car­ried out by a re­con­sti­tuted IEBC, or by another body. Nasa can­di­date Raila Odinga should par­tic­i­pate in the com­ing elec­tions with­out giv­ing any con­di­tion, or re­move him­self from the poll. True, the court cited il­le­gal­i­ties and ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties which it wanted cor­rected to re­move doubts. If we con­tinue al­low­ing lead­ers to do what­ever they wish in the name of democ­racy, this coun­try could plunge into un­cer­tainty.
