The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) thought to have withdrawn from the Election Preparedness Committee eight months before the August 9, 2022 polls, citing claimed infringement of its independence. The Independent Electoral Boundaries and Commission has responded to the letter that leaked on the election preparatory committee's withdrawal.
The IEBC Chairman, Wafula Chebukati, informed members of the National Multi-Sectoral Consultative Forum on Election Preparedness and its Technical Working Committee in a letter dated Monday, November 29, that the polls' body would not submit to pressure to abandon its constitutionally mandated election mandate.
"IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati writes to Interior PS Dr Karanja Kibicho withdrawing from the National Multi-Sectoral Consultative Forum (NMSCF) and the Technical Working Committee (TWC) on Election Preparedness over "infringement of the Commission's independence". The reports stated.
However, according to the IEBC's most recent notification, the letters circulating in the media are bogus stories. The body has come forward to clarify the charges that have caused jitters between the camps of two presidential candidates.
