JUST IN: IEBC gazettes Bungoma, among other regions by-elections

The independent electoral and boundary commission(IEBC) has gazetted the day when the by-election for Bungoma senatorial seat will happen.

Through the official Twitter account, the administrator has confirmed that 8th December 2022 is the day when the by-election will happen.

The by-election is also expected to take place in various parts of the country. Due to unavoidable circumstances, the IEBC has been forced to conduct fresh polls in various parts of the country.

"By-Elections for Ololmasani, Kyome/Thaana, Utawala, Mumias North and South Gem Wards in Narok, Kitui, Nairobi City, Kakamega, and Siaya County Assemblies, respectively, scheduled for 8th December 2022", said the administrator.

The senatorial seat for Bungoma county is vacant due to the appointment of Moses Masika Wetangula as the speaker of the national assembly.

The IEBC is therefore expected to announce the official day when the fresh campaigns will kick off. It is also expected that the political parties will soon announce their preferred candidates for the advertised positions.
