Orange Democratic Movement Secretary Accuses IEBC Over Disrespect To Parties

Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) secretary General Edwin Sifuna has accused Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission, IEBC over disrespectful to the parties.

"It is very bad manners the way IEBC treats political parties yet we are biggest stakeholders when it comes to elections,” stated Sifuna.

He was expressing the party’s disappointment over last week’s move by IEBC to declare that 89 political parties were not compliant to nomination rules.

The outspoken ODM politician further faulted IEBC over poor communication, saying that the body is using the wrong channels to pass its message.

Sifuna argued that the choice of channels is diminutive and does not exhibit respect to the parties.

He argued that political parties should be addressed confidentially and in an official manner rather than using the press.

“I didn’t find it amusing that they could write letters to us as political parties and before we receive those letters, they have sent copies to you in the media,” Sifuna noted.

He therefore said that the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission should treat them with respect.
