IEBC has withdrawn from the Multi-Sectoral Committee on Electoral Preparedness.
"After consultations and in-depth critical appraisal of the Terms of Reference (TOars) of the National Multi-sectoral Consultative Forum (NMSCF) on Election Preparedness; and the Technical Working Committee (TWC) of the NMSCF in Election Preparedness, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) would wish to respectfully withdraw from further engagement in activities of the said NMSCF and TWC," it said.
According to IEBC, several TORS of the NMScF and the TWC has the net effect of violating the Constitution by purporting to direct the commission on how to discharge its mandate contrary to Article 88 of the Constitution which clearly outlines the mandate of the commission and Article 249 of the Constitution.
The IEBC added that they only give instructions from the Constitution and the Law and not any other authority.
