With hopes that dialogue had began to take shape to resolve the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission standoff, both Jubilee and the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) have agreed on a number of issues to pave way for the Joint Select Committee on IEBC.

“We have seen from the CORD statement that there is a proposal of another four member committee that we as a party are unaware about,” a statement from State House indicated.

The two parties however still have several other outstanding issues regarding the establishment and operation of the joint committee.

Though they had not agreed on the number of nominees each side was supposed to nominate, Jubilee dismissed CORD’s selection of yet another four-member committee following Thursday’s meeting.

“There has not been any suggestion or agreement on this four-member committee,” Jubilee responded.

The two parties were in agreement that speakers of the National Assembly and the Senate will not be involved in the discussions of the select committee.
