Political heat being experienced in the country might take longer than expected. The General Election is supposed to take place in August next year and each politician has started laying foundation to enable him/ her emerge victorious.
News from reliable sources indicate that it might fail to happen on the indicated date. This is after the former senator Paul Njoroge went to court to file a petition that might bar it from taking place in August 9th 2022. In the petition, Njoroge argues that when IEBC made a declaration that the next election be held on 9th August 2022, it was improperly constituted as it did not have requisite proper quorom of its commissioners.
The Senator further claims that IEBC has embarked and initiated a very costly administrative process which includes tendering of various hardware and software materials for the election. He says 2022 General Election has a direct and adverse effect on the county's public finances.
If the petition is considered by the court then this will be bad news to Kenyans who are eagerly waiting to see the next president of Kenya and also to concentrate on their daily lives without the fear of what election results might bring in the country. Election being postponed to 2023 is the bad thing that any person wants to hear now.
