IEBC to observe Indian general election

29 April 2014, 09:06 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) will observe the Indian general elections.

According to a statement to the media from the electoral body, the Indian High Commissioner to Kenya Yogeshwar Varma asked the IEBC to take up the initiative after meeting with IEBC officials.

“The Indian High Commissioner to Kenya H.E. Yogeshwar Varma has invited IEBC to observe the Indian general elections,” the statement indicated.

The statement came in a wake of censure from CORD coalition saying that its MPs will forward a Bill in the floor of the house aiming at sending current nine IEBC officials packing.

The opposition coalition has maintained that Kenya’s 2013 general elections were not fairly conducted adding that the electoral commission was biased in the exercise.

However, the Indian High Commissioner Monday held discussions with IEBC election officials and briefed the Commission on the progress of the preparations for the Indian elections.  

Varma was accompanied by a team of officials from the Indian High Commission.

The Indian election, which is regarded as the largest electoral exercise in the world has an estimated voting population of 814 Million.

The Indian elections take a month to conclude due to the high population.

Varma stated that the Indian Electoral Commission is keen to ensure that the entire process is free and fair.

The statement indicated that Kenya (IEBC) is keen to draw lessons from massive election as it plans for the 2017 general elections.
