The electoral commission is holed up in a meeting following the move by National Super Alliance (Nasa) to pull out of the October 26 repeat presidential elections.
In a post on its Twitter account, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) stated that the commissioners and the legal team are meeting to deliberate on the move.
“Following the withdrawal of the NASA presidential candidate, the Commission and the legal team are meeting and will communicate way forward,” the post read.
Nasa , in its statement over the withdrawal from the presidential race, accused the IEBC of bad faith and engaging them in a “ping pong game” in its preparation for the repeat polls.
“The IEBC has refused, neglected or failed to put in place mechanisms to correct these illegalities and irregularities. We deem that the fresh election ordered by the Supreme Court cannot therefore be held,” Nasa claimed.
The opposition claimed that the electoral agency had no intention of streamlining the electoral system to conform to the constitution and election laws.
Opposition says demos will be countrywide on Wednesday.
