Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Commissioner Mr Abdi Guliye is reportedly expected to step down from his position after serving the commission for the past five years.
In a statement while speaking on Friday during the presentation of Elgeyo Marakwet senator-elect, William Kisang, Mr Guliye informed that he'll no longer be in office after the next 11 days. This would be on January 17th, 2023.
The Commissioner, who's among the three IEBC officials who didn't revoke President Ruto's election victory back in August stated that following this could be his last time serving in the electoral Commission.
“This is probably my last official assignment at the IEBC before I exit,” he added.
Further, he recounted the challenges he and his team that includes the IEBC boss Wafula Chebukati faced in the previous polls, acknowledging the fact that they remained committed to upholding the integrity of the electoral process.
“We have faced a lot of challenges as a commission, but we have always remained committed to upholding the integrity of the electoral process and ensuring that every vote counts," Mr Guliye said.
