President Uhuru's Jubilee Party has rejected the new six-member team unveiled by IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati to preside over the October 17th repeat election.
In a statement issued by secretary general Raphael Tuju, the ruling party asked Chebukati to replace the team because those picked are well known to be partisan.
"We have received credible information that in the list, there are people known to be partisan," he said on Wednesday.
Jubilee singled out Marijan Hussein (project coordinator), Salome Oyugi (head of legal), Decimah Mmayi, Chispie Owiye, and Joseph Ayatta as those who should be thrown out of the team.
Others are Joyce Euom, Tabitha Mutemi, Limus Onyango and Caroline Manyange.
"Given the fact that acts of omission or commission that rendered the [August 8 general] election null and void originated from the IEBC staff, we hereby register our strong objection to the deployment of the above to be in a position to run the process." Tuju added.
On Tuesday, electoral commission chairperson named a new team to preside over the polls under his watch.
Albert Gogo (head of ICT), Hussein (coordinator), Bernard Misati (head of training), Sidney Namulungu (head of operations), Nancy Kariuki (logistics), Oyugi (head of legal) and Silas Rotich (head of national tallying centre) are among those named in the new team.
Opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) had also threatened to boycott the repeat polls saying IEBC is yet to heed to their demands.
Raila Odinga will face off with President Uhuru Kenyatta following a Supreme Court ruling that nullified August 8th election and ordered a fresh poll be held within 60 days.
