Cord’s protest over tender for voter register audit risky
Cord’s protest over the IEBC’s decision to float a tender for the audit of the voter register has raised fresh concerns about preparations for the general election. With just under 300 days to the polls, the IEBC risks falling behind the schedule in preparations — with the process of recruiting new commissioners yet to start — if such concerns are not addressed in consultation. The immediate former poll chiefs have no legal mandate and cannot constitute the commission, as their appointments expired when they resigned.
