Nairobi – According to the Daily Nation, Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Isaack Hassan said on that it would not be practical to hold elections next August.
Hassan cited the numerous tasks that the IEBC Act says his commission must perform to prepare for the elections, saying “We have to study the report by the Independent Electoral Boundaries and Review Commission (IEBRC) and submit the findings to Parliament within four months, hire and train staff, declare boundaries for constituencies and wards, conduct voter education and registration and procure computers.”
Recently the International Commission for Jurists-Kenya said that holding a poll in August would be a hurried affair for the commissioners.
