The AG and the IEBC have been directed to respond to a case by two MPs who want more than 2 million youths who have no IDs registered as voters.
High Court judge Isaac Lenaola told the two to respond to the case before February 18 when it will come up for hearing. The case has been filed by Embakasi MP Ferdinand Waititu and his Makadara counterpart Mike Sonko .
The MPs say the more than 2 million youths who have waiting cards should be allowed to take part in the March 4 elections. Through lawyer Evans Ondieki, the MPs say failure to allow the youth to vote will be undemocratic and illegal.
"There can be no free and fair election without the full participation of all the six million youths who are possessing waiting cards," says Waititu in the affidavit. They want IEBC forced to accept waiting cards as IDs and to register the youth.
