Like now-de­funct ECK, re­name IEBC ahead of elec­tion

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

Af­ter the Is­sack Has­san-led IEBC team re­signed last week, the gov­ern­ment should move fast through con­sul­ta­tions and name the new com­mis­sion­ers and, most im­por­tantly, re­name the elec­toral agency. We need a new name, other than IEBC, just as hap­pened with the ECK. The de­ci­sion to send home all the nine com­mis­sion­ers raises tough ques­tions about the cred­i­bil­ity of the 2013 elec­tion. In most demo­cratic states such as the US and the UK, we should have had snap elec­tions as a re­sult of the anom­alies that were re­ported.
