Jubilee using IEBC to rig elections, Mudavadi claims
11 October 2016, 17:21
Nairobi - The Jubilee Party is using the IEBC stalemate to prepare means to rig the 2017 elections, Musalia Mudavadi claims.
Amani National Congress party leader Mudavadi has cautioned against a delay in constituting a fresh electoral commission, alleging a plot to extend the General Election date.
Mudavadi said the Jubilee administration had started playing games with
Kenyans so that they can get enough time to manipulate the results of
the next elections.
" It is clear that what the government of the day is trying to do is manipulate the coming polls. It cannot be allowed to take place," he stated.
He insisted that elections must be held next August as
stipulated in the Constitution, and any attempt to push the date forward
amounted to a mutilation of the supreme law.
" If the law is followed, the commission may not be formed properly, the government should not delay the process," he said.
Uhuru Kenyatta declared the Independent Electoral and Boundaries
Commission seats vacant last Thursday after the resignation of
the nine commissioners.
Mudavadi is eyeing a second crack at the Presidency in the 2017 polls.
