by Mahakamani News

top the repeat presidential election, order IEBC to make fresh election date, voters ask Supreme Court.

The three voter say that the IEBC is not prepared to conduct the election and threats to their employees may prejudice the voting process.

Khelef khalia, samweul monochi  and Gacheke Gachihi claim that there exist active subbotage and frustration of the fresh election.

They say that IEBC lacks the ability and capacity to conduct a free, fair and credible election.

“IEBC appears unable to take administrative action against its servants, staff members whose actions contributed to the invalidation and nullification of the presidential election,” they say.

Lawyer Harun Ndubi for Khelef khalia, samweul monochi and Gacheke Gachihi who have filed a petition seeking to stop elections scheduled for October 26,2017.

In the petition they argue that in as much as the election might technically logistically and operationally be prepared for the fresh election, the election is more than logistics and operations and the political environment and confidence by Kenyans is key.

They further argue that the withdrawal of Raila Odinga and Kalonzo Musyoka triggered the vacation of the fresh presidential election by operation of law.

They thus want the court to compel IEBC to ensure strict compliance to the law to ensure free, fair and credible election as stipulated in the law.

They are also seeking an order compelling IEBC to conduct fresh nominations and issue a notice of a new election date.
