Why IEBC Awarded The Greek Company Ballot Box Papers Tender.

It is still not clear why every general election, the electoral body of Kenya is always awarding ballot box tenders to foreign countries. Is it because we do not have competent firms with us here in Kenya or what could be the reason?

The Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission, in a notice to one of the bidders, said Inform Lykos was the bid with the lowest evaluated responsive price at 7,172.85 Euros (Sh921,326) for 3,000 ballot papers.

According to my opinion, I strongly believe that the IEBC which is the electoral body of Kenya tries their best to ensure fairness when it comes to the general election where companies may be influenced by parties.

The IEBC in the tender documents said that considering the six elective positions in the general elections, the minimum quantity that shall be required was 117,600,000 ballot papers and a maximum of 180,000,000 ballot papers.
