Cord’s protest over ten­der for voter reg­is­ter au­dit risky

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

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.
