James Orengo hits at IEBC over Presidential elections

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) appeared before the Senate Justice and Legal Affairs Committee.

The Committee proposed a number of issues including the idea of having the Presidential and Parliamentary elections differently.

Senator James Orengo (Siaya) maintained that the agency which has over the years been tainted with a bad image should do more to instil public confidence especially ahead of the 2022 polls.

He lamented that it was discouraging to see discontented parties after every election period castigating the agency for overseeing a rigged election.

“Presidential elections are fought harder in other countries like Brazil, India and Indonesia but results are always accepted. The agency should focus on ensuring that even here in Kenya the results are accepted once the final results are announced,” he said.
