Nairobi - The Joint select parliamentary committee on IEBC wants the commissioners to leave office by September 30.
This will ensure that a new team takes office early enough to prepare for the 2017 general elections, The Star reports.
The committee has so far agreed that the IEBC commissioners be reduced from 9 to 7, serving on full term basis.
