IEBC exit deal welcome, now get new team in office
The National Council of NGOs welcomes the news that the IEBC commissioners have agreed to leave office upon the swearing in of new electoral chiefs. Importantly, other than doing away with the uncertainty about their exit, this will avoid a power vacuum and a consequent constitutional crisis ahead of the elections. A new commission is by law supposed to be in office at least six months before a general election is held. We now hope the process to identify a new electoral team will start as soon as possible to meet the timelines.
