Following concerns raised by Azimio Coalition presidential candidate, Raila Odinga, on forms 34A and 34B, Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has called Kenya’s four presidential candidates for a meeting on Friday, July 29.
IEBC’s Chief Executive Officer, Marjan Hussein Marjan, said the commission will clarify Forms 34A and 34B after Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya raised concerns, in an attempt to clear the air and offer clarifications to whatever questions the aspirants have.
IEBC has written to Deputy President William Ruto of UDA, Raila Odinga of Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya, George Wajackoyah of Roots Party, and David Mwaure of Agano Party inviting them for a meeting.
“The purpose of this letter is to invite you and your representatives to a consultative meeting to address the concerns raised,” said Marjan in his letter to the candidates.
Raila through Azimio’s legal adviser Paul Mwangi raised concern about having discovered that IEBC printed two books of Forms 34A.
Azimio la Umoja questioned the printing of Forms 34A and 34B which were shouldered by a Greek Firm contracted by the IEBC.
Another main issue brought forth was IEBC not printing Forms 34B, into which polling station results recorded in Forms 34A are aggregated, which the coalition expects IEBC to answer.
