2017 General Elections to remain in August

01 October 2015, 19:01 William Korir

Nairobi - The 2017 General Elections will remain held in August after MPs voted to have it remain as inscribed in the Constitution.

The elections had been mooted to be changed to December of the same year by some MPs but it failed to get the required numbers to have it so.

Only 216 of the required 233 MPs voted for the change Thursday.

24 MPs voted against and 4 abstained.

Ugenya MP David Ochieng had wanted the elections changed to December to follow a pattern that has seen elections in the country held in the final months of the year on a number of occasions.

Proponents felt it was good as it came at the end of the year and was not disruptive while the ones against felt that it was dangerous as the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision tenure ends in November which would cause a problem in the elections.

Ochieng was disappointed with the result.

" I am disappointed with the result but it is the wish of the members and I have to respect it," he stated.
