Political Parties have gotten a huge win following latest ruling by the High Court against the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC)).
High Court in its ruling has issued temporary orders stopping IEBC's recent directive that political parties should comply with the two-thirds gender rule ahead of the August 9th general election.
Lawyer Adrian Kamotho had sued IEBC over the two thirds gender rule on allegations that the directive is draconian and unreasonable.
The city lawyer had sued IEBC over its recent directive compelling political parties to comply with the two-thirds gender principle which required political parties to comply with the two-thirds gender rule by 12th May.
According to the IEBC Commission chair, Wafula Chebukati who made the last-minute call through a press statement on May 9 after he extended the previous 9th May deadline to 12th May, political parties risked being locked out of the August 9 elections due to non-compliance.
