Just the other day President Uhuru Kenyatta in an address to the nation said that he had agreed to form a team that would seek to end the current stalemate on IEBC. According to the president, he made the decision following consultations with speakers of the Senate and the National Assembly and religious leaders. “A joint select committee of both Houses of Parliament will be set up in accordance with Standing Orders of both Houses with keen mandate exclusively limited to the matter of IEBC,” The President said. He also called on the opposition, CORD to soften their stand on the issue and agree on seeking the resolutions on the matter. CORD has however rejected the proposal by President Uhuru Kenyatta to form a Joint Select Committee of Parliament to spearhead talks on the issues surrounding the IEBC. The opposition says as much as the move is aiming at trying to come up with a solution to the stalemate, it does not cater for CORD's demand for an out-of-Parliament dialogue process. As this is happening, Peter Kenneth, former MP for Gatanga has joined in in calling for the IEBC commissioners. Through a Facebook post on his wall, Peter Kenneth there are still serious doubts over IEBC's credibilty to run the next general elections. He says the commission cannot be trusted to preside over a free and fair elections.
There are serious doubts over IEBC’s ability to preside over a free election in this country, without the results being clouded with doubts.
