Ballot Papers Flown In Ahead Of August Elections


Ballot papers for Governor, Woman Representative and Senate elections will arrive in the country from Dubai Tuesday night.

The materials arrive in the country even as the printing of the presidential ballots meant to commence July 18 stands halted awaiting the outcome of an appeal filed by Independent Elections and Boundaries Commission (IEBC)


The court of appeal will on Thursday issue a landmark decision that may determine if August 8 polls will be held as scheduled or not.

A five- judge bench is examining whether the High Court decision terminating a contract between IEBC and Dubai-based printing firm Al Ghurair will remain in force or will be set aside.

On Friday, Attorney General Githu Muigai and the electoral agency painted a grim picture of what might happen should the Court fail to overturn the decision
