Jubilee protests CORD's attempt to intimidate IEBC

18 February 2016, 08:07 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi - The Jubilee coalition has accused their Cord counterparts of trying to intimidate the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) by and dictating how it should conduct its constitutional mandate during the ongoing voter registration exercise.

A section of Jubilee MPs, led by Majority Leader Aden Duale protested the manner Cord was handling distribution of voter registration kits and warned the commission against bowing to the threats by the opposition.

Duale, while addressing the press at Parliament Buildings said that IEBC must maintain its constitutional independence during the voter registration exercise.

"IEBC must be an independent referee in conducting all electoral processes, including voter registration. We are telling IEBC that it cannot be intimidated, coerced and threatened by Cord. It has to act devoid of any interference," said Duale.

Cord leaders led by Raila Odinga on Tuesday went to meet the IEBC officers in Nairobi to protest the manner it had distributed the voter registration kits claiming the Commission was keen on disenfranchising voters in Cord strongholds.

Raila complained that IEBC was giving more Biometric Voter Registration (BVR) kits in Jubilee strongholds, which Duale claims was meant to intimidate the commission.

He pointed out that the distribution of BVR kits must be guided by population distribution and the parameters that are stipulated in the Constitution.
