Nairobi - In a bid to entrench a December general elections, a network of women organisations is calling on Parliament to accelerate debate on the Constitution of Kenya (Amendment) Bill.
According to Capital News reports that the Women’s Political Alliance, argued on Sunday that the decision by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to announce a March 2013 poll was ill-advised as the Bill was already before the House.
The Alliance's Vice Chair Esther Keino said that the IEBC should have waited for the determining of the Court ruling on the appeal by the women organisations including the Caucus for women’s leadership and the other stakeholders because elections will affect all Kenyans and the selected dates will also affect the number that turn up for the elections depending on whether it is (a) holiday period or not.
