    Ruto Declares Wafula Chebukati’s IEBC Position Vacant

    Published on

    The office of the chairperson of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), presently occupied by Wafula Chebukati, has been declared vacant by President William Ruto.

    Two more commissioners (Boya Molu and Abdi Guliye) positions with expiring terms in January 2023 were announced by the President in a Gazette Notice dated October 21, 2022.

    “Now, then, in the exercise of the powers vested in me,” Ruto continued, “I William Samoei Ruto, President of the Republic of Kenya, notify you of forthcoming vacancies in the above positions.”

    When commissioner terms are up, the President should announce the openings in the official gazette at least six months in advance, as required by the IEBC Act.

    Furthermore, the president will choose the commission’s chairperson and other commissioners by assembling a panel of seven people under his authority.

    Chebukati assumed the role of chairman in December 2016.

    The General Elections of 2017 and 2022 were under his watch as a chairman of the Commission.

    As Chebukati was announcing Ruto’s victory on Monday, August 15th, he also announced his own departure from office, set for January 2023.
