IEBC Maintains Party Primaries Must Begin On 13th-26th April
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has maintained that the party primaries will be held between 13th and 26th of April after aspirants names are gazetted
This is a big blow to ODM who had slated to kick off today in Busia, Bungoma and Machakos counties.
Chebukati clashed with ODM on the dates for holding party primaries with the IEBC Chairperson insisting all party primaries should be conducted between April 14 and April 26 after the Commission gazettes names of all aspirants from respective political parties.
Chebukati had said the Commission will advise the party by today on whether to continue with the exercise without the official gazettment of aspirants by the IEBC.
This follows yesterday’s meeting between the National Super Alliance (NASA) principals Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang’ula and electoral officials.
