Nyandarua senator John Methu seeks to have the four independent electoral and boundaries commission members condemned for their actions.
In his petition before the senate, the legislator calls upon the polls agency to effect the legal, policy and instructional reforms recommended by the supreme court during its ruling on the presidential petition.
He argues that the actions of the four were deliberate and concerted efforts to subvert the sovereign will of the people through obstructing the constitutional mandate of the commission to conduct free and fair election.
According to him, due to their decision , the country was plunged into a state of disquiet leading to questions being raised on whether the results were legitimate.
Besides Methu, farmers party has also filed a petition Before the national assembly to have the four removed for attempting to sabotage the august 9 polls.
