The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission will today open up the voter register to allow Kenyans to verify their details. However, unlike in the past where the register was left open for a month, Kenyans have only two weeks to inspect it.
Yesterday, IEBC CEO James Oswago said the commission has finished compiling and verifying the voter register which had 14 million voters enrolled by December 19. "We are done with compilation and we will be opening the register tomorrow for inspection," Oswago said. Last week, Parliament amended the law to allow the IEBC to open the register for only 14 days instead of the 30 days set by the Elections Act.
MPs amended the law to allow IEBC to make adjustments within 14 days instead of 30 days after the inspection of the registers is over.
