AfriCOG asks court to compel IEBC publish voters list – Nation Media

 

Africa Centre for Open Governance (Africog) director Gladwell Otieno has moved to court seeking to have the electoral agency compelled to publish and open up the voter register for public inspection as clustered per polling stations.

Ms Otieno who has sued the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) also wants it to take into consideration submissions by concerned persons as required by law and revise the register of voters.

In the case documents, she claims that the failure to do so threatens the right to a free, fair and democratic polls come August 8.

She argues that if that is complied with, the electoral process will be transparent, accountable and accurate.

She also wants the IEBC to be temporarily stopped from distributing a purported register of voters to returning officers for use in the General Election before being subjected to public inspection in a reasonable time frame.
