Kenya’s Cabinet wants polls held in 2013

17 February 2012, 07:17

Nairobi – The Cabinet on Thursday ruled out subjecting the country to rushed elections, giving indication that elections will be held in 2013.

The government’s top decision-making organ resolved to follow the recent High Court ruling which gave an option of an election in 2012 – only if the two Principals opted for it – or by March 15 next year following expiry of the current Parliament’s term.

“The Cabinet noted that the issue of the election date must be guided by the country’s level of preparedness, for a date that will guarantee a free, fair and credible election that sets the country on a path of transformation,” read a Cabinet media brief from the Presidential Press Service.
