On May 7, 2009, the Kenyan Interim Independent Electoral Commission (IIEC) was founded. The commission was established to take the position of Kenya's former Electoral Commission, which was heavily criticized for electoral violence after the nation's 2007 general elections. On May 11, 2009, the Commissioner was sworn in.
The Interim Independent Electoral Commission of Kenya (IIEC) was spread out on May 7, 2009. The commission was molded to replace Kenya's ahead of time old Electral Commission of Kenya (ECK), which was comprehensively blamed for selective mercilessness following the country's general election in 2007.
DP Ruto's Chief of Staff was the late Ken Osinde, who died on December 10, 2021. Davis Chirchir, who was President Uhuru Kenyatta's chief of staff during the 2013 and 2017 presidential elections, has been named as Ruto's new chief of staff.
Chirchir, who also served in Uhuru's first Cabinet as a Cabinet Secretary for Energy and Petroleum, met with Ruto's team on March 1, about a week after his appointment. Chirchir was appointed on February 24, according to announcements posted at DP Ruto's office.
