Nairobi - The Standard reports that, the electoral commission fell short of netting its targeted 3.7 million registered voters by close to one million potential voters, even as it struggles to overcome challenges posed by the newly-introduced Biometric Voter Registration system.
Figures released by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) as the exercise entered the second week on Monday revealed that 2,795,604 Kenyans had registered to vote by last Saturday.
The commission announced that the figure was only 75 per cent of its target of 3,725,850 that it had set for the period.
