It is not negotiable to use a manual register in the August elections, RAILA ODINGA informs IEBC chief WAFULA CHEBUKATI.


Azimio The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) must employ both computerized and manual registries during the presidential election on August 9th, according to one Kenyan candidate, Raila Odinga.

The IEBC had decided not to utilize printed registrations on election day because they believed they would open the door for electoral fraud.

But Raila stated on Wednesday in Gatundu that they would not budge from their demand that the commission deliver printed voter records on election day.

There must be a manual register at every polling place. There is no negotiating,” Raila remarked.

Under the direction of Wafula Chebukati, the commission changed its earlier decision to use the electronic voter register as the only record used to verify voters on June 30 in response to pressure.

However, the commission declared that in the event of a technological failure, it would only use the manual register as a last resort.

But according to Raila, using the manual register is not a last resort and is actually necessary.

Every voting location across the nation should have both manual and computerized registers, according to Raila.
