IEBC ex­tends dead­line to next week for bids to sup­ply elec­toral ma­te­ri­als

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

The IEBC has pushed the dead­line for sup­pli­ers to bid for mul­ti­mil­lion-shilling ten­ders for the sup­ply of elec­tion ma­te­ri­als to Novem­ber 17.

The dead­line for the bids for ma­te­ri­als, in­clud­ing un­break­able and fire-re­sis­tant bal­lot boxes, was sup­posed to be this morn­ing.

The IEBC wants to buy 106,000 trans­par­ent bal­lot boxes for ad­di­tional polling sta­tions, and re­place faulty and bro­ken ones.

The IEBC said the boxes should be man­u­fac­tured from plas­tic that with­stands ex­po­sure to ul­tra­vi­o­let ra­di­a­tion.

The boxes should not trap the bal­lot pa­pers when emp­tied. The IEBC has also in­vited ten­ders for se­cu­rity seals, tam­per-proof en­velopes marked “IEBC Con­fi­den­tial Ma­te­rial” and in­deli­ble marker pens.
