Nairobi -The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) now says that the Ethics and Anti Corruption Commission (EACC) will be responsible for clearing candidates ahead of the 2013 General Election.
IEBC Chairman Isaack Hassan insisted that the mandate has been vested in the EACC through the proposed Bill on Integrity and Leadership and that the IEBC will only receive the documents showing clearance.
“The body that clears candidates is actually the EACC, we will only receive the nomination papers from candidates and one of them will be the clearance by the EACC,” said Hassan after the launch of the new IEBC corporate identity.
