IEBC: NASA’s Petition Is Vague

Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission in  response termed the petition by National Super Alliance vague.

The electoral agency has downplayed the NASA petition disputing Presidential results in the just concluded general elections terming it vague.

In a response filed by the commission at Supreme Court on Thursday, it said NASA’s petition is based on generalities, misconceptions and lack particulars as required by law.

The commission filed their response at Supreme Court minutes after President Uhuru Kenyatta’s legal team submitted theirs.

The commission said it complied with the Constitution and all relevant electoral interpretations of the law as pronounced by the courts.

According to the commission, the just concluded election was conducted in line with elections act 105 (2017).

The commission further denied claims that in more than 10,000 polling stations, data entered in KIEMS was not consistent with information and data from the respective Forms 34A.

The commission further says statistics of results and images of scanned forms were sent from polling stations simultaneously and delays in receipt of the images of forms are attributed to their big file size and lack of steady 3G or 4G network.

It said the declaration of presidential election results was on the basis of Forms 34B from all the 290 constituency tallying centers and the diaspora.
