The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission IEBC, has today released a list of 81 political parties which submitted list of nominated members as at the 25th Day of June Midnight which was set as the deadline.
The two parties have since come out to clear the air on why they failed to submit the list. Ford Asili secretary-general Njeru Gathangu states that their party has very little candidates for the upcoming general elections and the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has out emphasis on big parties like the Orange Democratic Movement party and Jubilee party.
Ukweli party chief executive officer Martin Njuguna also stated the same reason adding that they opted out of the process since they stand no chance of getting political funds due to the few number of aspirants they are fielding in August polls.
