Ford Asili says IEBC should first be fully constituted before continuing with 2022 elections preparations saying it lacks a quorum to conduct business, after

In a statement sent to the newsroom, Ford Asili secretary General Njeru Gathangu warned IEBC against ignoring the rule of law saying it will have serious legal and moral ramifications on its integrity and the 2022 general polls.

“If IEBC had no quorum to verify referendum signatures, what makes the Wafula Chebukati-led IEBC think they have the capacity to undertake procurement of materials for the polls”, said Gathangu.

Gathangu further threatened legal redress if IEBC continues to operate in blatant breach of the law. The Court of appeal threw out BBI  and further stated that IEBC lacked quorum.
