Will IEBC extend voters’ Registration Process?

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has ruled out the extension of the on-going mass registration of voters, saying it would require 1.5 billion shillings to extend it by two months.

Senators had wanted the electoral body to add two more months for the mass registration set to end mid this month, but the agency said it did not have extra funds to do so.

IEBC chairman Issack Hassan told the lawmakers, through a statement to the House yesterday, that the commission had not been allocated adequate funds in the current financial year to conduct registration for the past one month. The on-going exercise that began on 15th February   is set to end on 15th March .
