IEBC Fires Back At Raila Following His No Election Remarks Due To Lack Of Manual Register

Raila Odinga, the leader of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party, gained notoriety when he declared that if the IEBC doesn't employ both the manual register and the electronic register, elections won't take place. In order to make his case, Raila claimed that skipping the manual register would be a surefire way to commit fraud.It is not negotiable; a manual register must be used in addition to the electronic register. No elections, no manual register.

In response to the allegations, the IEBC asserted through its CEO Marjan Hussein that anyone attempting to contest the decision to forgo the manual register must provide specific justification for their position. In other words, according to the IEBC, the commission will continue to only use the manual register and the polls will proceed as scheduled. The first set of ballots have already arrived in the nation, the commission further disclosed."Anyone trying to make not utilizing the manual register illegal must be questioned about their justifications."
