The wiper party had earlier on revealed it's plan to participate in the presidential race revealing its candidate as Kalonzo Musyoka. However, the mission was almost blown away after the IEBC locked out Kalonzo from participating in the presidential election. The act by IEBC had the party question the commission as it revealed that it had met all the requirements and did not know the reason for being locked out.
Responding to the wiper party today, the IEBC commission revealed the key mistake that had Kalonzo out of the race. According to a letter by IEBC, the wiper party submitted its soft copy version of signatures in form of PDF instead of the required Excel format leading to them being disqualified from the race.
"The commission has considered and acceded to your request to be allowed to submit the soft copy of your list of supporters in Excel format by 29th May at 9:00am at the Bomas of Kenya, failing which your documentation will not be certified as compliant," read part of the IEBC letter.
