The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Nairobi -

The In­ter­na­tional Cen­ter for Pol­icy and Con­flict yes­ter­day asked po­lit­i­cal par­ties and hope­fuls to fo­cus on is­sue-based cam­paigns. Ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor Wainaina Ndung’u urged vot­ers to elect leaders who give pri­or­ity to se­cu­rity, econ­omy, equal­ity and job cre­ation. ”We un­der­score the need to en­sure the elec­tions are con­ducted in peace­ful, con­struc­tive and cred­i­ble en­vi­ron­ment ,” Ndung’u said. He said ICPC is ready to sup­port the IEBC in tak­ing steps to re­in­force in­tegrity in the elec­toral sys­tem. “In­for­ma­tion about these steps is not widely un­der­stood by many,” he said.
