In a statement on Monday, December 5, Barasa claimed that Cherera should not have submitted her resignation if she knew she was acting morally.
The politician claims that the IEBC vice chair offered her resignation because she did not follow the law and the constitution.
"Juliana Cherera shouldn't have quit if she was acting morally. Her resignation served as a sign that she was not abiding by the Constitution. Let the law handle it "As Barasa said.
Cherera announced her resignation from the electoral body in a letter to President William Ruto on Monday.
She said in the letter that while she had fought for the fair treatment of all IEBC employees, her continued employment at the commission was no longer viable.
"I am resigning from my positions as vice chair and commissioner of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission today with great regret. As vice chair, I consistently fought for equitable treatment and equal opportunity for all employees.
Part of the statement read, "I accept that my stay at the commission is no longer tenable and choose to vacate after carefully evaluating the current events at the commission and after consulting with my family and attorneys.
She resigned after President Ruto removed her and three other commissioners from their positions and established a tribunal to investigate their behavior during the elections on August 9.
Justus Nyang'aya, one of the three commissioners, along with Irene Masit and Francis Wanderi, had also submitted his resignation.
