The Jubilee party’s secretary general, Jeremiah Kioni, vowed to sue the IEBC and Chebukati in court, saying that they had committed irregularities in voting in favor of their opponents.
He stated that the IEBC helped the Kenya Kwanza party gain an advantage in the parliamentary speaker election by allocating Jubilee Party spots to them.
“In the Senate, one of our slots was taken away and we will not give it up even if it means going to court. We will do so because it was taken from us and given to one of the parties of our opponents,” Kioni alleged.
He went on to detail other instances of these kinds of irregularities committed by the IEBC against Uhurus’ party.
“In Samburu, we have seven MCAs elected on Jubilee party we were given six nomination slots while UDA with six MCAs was given five nomination slots. These are some of the examples of irregularities committed against us,” Kioni added.
In a statement, Chebukati dismissed the allegation by kioni, “The formulae applied through the electronic system is simple, secure, and accurate and is without room for either adverse human intervention or bias,” reads his statement in part.
Azimio La Umoja Coalition members contended that the late nomination list affected the results of Thursday’s speaker elections in both houses.
