John Mbadi Reveals What ODM is “Planning” for IEBC Commissioners Ahead Of 2022

Appearing in JK Live in Citizen TV, Orange Democratic Movement Party Chairman John Mbadi has hindered on “dealing” with three IEBC Commissioners immediately the other four appointees assumes office.

Giving reasons why they are planning to remove the current commissioners, Mbadi said they have failed the entire commission despite having a legal team and headed by a lawyer.

MPs have now threatened to shoot down tough regulations by the electoral commission that seek to curb runaway election campaign spending.

The members accused IEBC of delaying the regulations. They said it was late for the House to consider the Election Campaign Financing Regulations 2020. The lawmakers said the commission failed to submit the regulations within the required timelines that state the Election Campaign Financing Act, 2013 be in place one year to the election.

The next General Election will be conducted on August 9, 2022. The regulations were tabled in the National Assembly last Thursday, before they were committed before the National Assembly Delegated Committee.

The lawmakers yesterday appeared rattled by the decision by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to issue a gazette notice spelling the maximum amount to be spent by individuals seeking elective positions.
