Parliament gives CORD go-ahead to disband IEBC

06 July 2016, 15:25 Samuel arap Yego

Nairobi - The process to reform the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) agency has finally officially started after MPs passed a motion on an IEBC select committee, which now gives the team a mandate to come up with electoral reforms.

Lawmakers Wednesday unanimously passed the motion that opens ways for a negotiated settlement of the contentious IEBC matter.

The opposition CORD leadership has been pushing for the disbandment of the polls body and staged countrywide protests for two months to push for the ouster of the body's commissioners. 

While moving the motion Tuesday, national assembly majority leader Aden Duale noted that although there was clear provision on the removal of IEBC commissioners from office, the issues raised by different actors had necessitated the formation of the select committee.

“The people of Kenya put the IEBC in the Constitution and insulated it against political players. The removal of the commissioners is also provided for in the Constitution. However, some issues have been raised, and it is the mandate of this House to offer leadership in times such as this,” said Mr Duale.

The team is made up of legislators from both Jubilee and CORD.
