Ballot paper printing starts next week, IEBC says

Written By: Rose Gakuo

The electoral body IEBC says the printing of ballot papers will begin next week in readiness for the fresh Presidential election.

The revelations were made by Commissioner Roselyn Akombe who spoke at a Nairobi hotel while giving an update of the commission’s preparedness ahead of the fresh October 26th polls.

In an update meeting with observer groups drawn from within and outside the country of the measures they have put in place to ensure the October 26th fresh presidential poll is free and fair, IEBC Commissioner Roselyn Akombe said printing will commence next week and is likely to be complete within the same week.

And with only 12 days remaining to the fresh poll, the commission is upbeat that all the requisite measures have been put in place to ensure it is free, fair and credible.

The Commission has since indicated that all the Presidential candidates who participated in the August 8th presidential poll will be on the ballot.

The Opposition candidate Raila Odinga withdrew from the race, though the commission insists his name will be on the ballot until he submits a duly signed Form 24A.

Raila who is currently in the United Kingdom is yet to respond to the assertion by IEBC even as he maintains he will only participate in the election if the commission is restructured.
