Referendum a must to change election date

Nairobi - A referendum is a must for the election date to be changed, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC has said.
Parliament has in recent times approved a bill to be taken to the floor of the house wishing to change the election dates.
The Justice and Legal Committee has recently approved a bill to change the election date from August to December.
But in a statement from the IEBC, a referendum will be needed to enact that change, which might cause a few issues as concerns the purported changes made.
It is likely that the matter will now be shelved by MPs, especially those on the side of the Jubilee coalition, who have already been against matters referendum.
