IEBC ready for Siaya poll
16 October 2013, 10:04
Siaya - The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) expressed preparedness to organise key by-elections in Siaya.
The head of elections in the region confirmed that they had finalized all the preparations and were now waiting for the exercise.
“We have trained agents, observers and voting clerks and all the electoral materials are ready for the exercise,” said the IECB head of elections for Siaya region, Jackline Osiamo.
Tuesday marked the end of campaigns for the by-elections. The end of campaigns will give the poll official adequate time to prepare the poll.
The elections come after the courts nullified former Governor Paul Rasanga’s elections citing massive electoral malpractices during the voting exercise. Siaya is a stronghold for the main opposition Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD).
A high voter turnout is expected on Thursday following the rigorous campaigns that have been held in the region.
