NAIROBI: Thursday, July 31, 2014
The Mathare Constituency by-election, earlier scheduled for 7th August, 2014, has been postponed to Monday, 11th August, 2014. This will allow IEBC adequate time to include Hon. William Omondi’s name on the ballot paper as a contestant in the by-election, in compliance with the High Court judgment issued on 30th July, 2014 in Constitutional Petition no. 288 of 2014.
The Gatundu South and Kibiri County Assembly Ward by-elections will proceed as earlier scheduled on Thursday, 7th August, 2014. IEBC had barred Mr. Omondi from presenting his papers for nominations because records with Registrar of Political Parties indicated that he was still a registered member of ODM yet he wanted to stand as an Independent candidate.
