Chiloba: IEBC impasse could affect 2017 polls

06 July 2016, 09:39 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Chief Executive Officer, Ezra Chiloba has said the uncertainty on the future of the commission should be solved promptly.

Speaking during a public lecture at Strathmore University on Tuesday, Chiloba warned that delays in deciding the fate of nine IEBC officials will affect the 2017 elections.

"There is an urgent need to have clarity on the future of the Commission. We are in a critical phase towards 2017.

“The debate that started in Parliament must close as soon as possible we only have 13 months before we head to next year’s polls,” Chiloba said.

According to Chiloba, the IEBC secretariat is the engine that drives election preparedness but a substantive commission should be in place to execute policies.

“We cannot declare elections or endorse results, those are done by the commissioners and that is why we have a commission in place,” said Chiloba.

His remarks came on the same day Parliament began debate on the motion to establish a Joint Select Committee to discuss the reconstitution of the commission.

If the 14-man committee is approved, it will have 30 days to make a report and recommendations on the future and composition of the commission.
