UDA Party, an associate of Kenya Kwanza, has petitioned Parliament to remove Juliana Cherera and three other Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) commissioners from office.
Justus Nyanga’ya, Irene Masit, and Francis Wanderi, together with Cherera, were the three commissioners that opposed chairperson Wafula Chebukati’s declaration of William Ruto as president-elect.
“Yes we are seeking for the removal of Cherera and others who we accused of violation of office,” said the former PS for Develution.
In addition, he issued a press statement indicating that the petition complied with Article 251 of the Constitution.
“A petition for the removal of four IEBC commissioners following the attempt by the said commissioners to sabotage an election process as witnessed on August 15, 2022, at Bomas Of Kenya.
Once the petition is deliberated by the National Assembly, the petition will be presented to the President for the appointment of a tribunal for the removal of the commissioners under article 251(3) of the Constitution.
Kenya Kwanza further claimed that the four had broken their oath by committing egregious violations of the Constitution.
“Farmers Party believes that this petition to the National Assembly is critical to entrenching the critical value of the IEBC in the growth of democracy and guiding the code of conduct by IEBC officials in subsequent elections,” they stated.
