Ruto threatens to block poll body

12 October 2011, 12:31

Nairobi - William Ruto(Eldoret North MP) some of his colleagues are up in arms over how the candidates were shortlisted, considering that there were qualified members of the now superseded Interim Independent Electoral Commission(IIEC) and the Interim Independent Boundaries Review Commission(IIBRC) who were  not shortlisted for interviews to the IEBC, the Nairobi Star reports.

The selection panel led by Dr. Ekuru Aukot, former CEO of the Committee of Experts that prepared the new constitution, have finalized their interviews for IEBC commissioners and will now start interviewing candidates for chairman.

According to Ruto and opposing MPs they believe that the applications of qualified but independent minded commissioners were rejected to create a biased shortlist of candidates.
