The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) says that it will not be displaying provisional results at the Bomas of Kenya national tallying centre during the October 26th fresh election.
In a memo by Chief Executive Officer Ezra Chiloba, IEBC said that it will not be able to reconfigure the KIEMS kits on time, after the inclusion of five other presidential candidates on the ballot.
Chiloba said the Commission had already reconfigured the election management system (KIEMS) to only President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga of the National Super Alliance (NASA).
He noted that the 11 days remaining to the fresh poll would no adequate for IEBC to reconfigure the KIEM kits to include names of Thirdway Alliance candidate Ekuru Aukot, Tunza' Alliances Abduba Dida and independent candidates Joe Nyaga, Japheth Kaluyu and Michael Wainaina.
Chiloba said that this will not only allow presiding officers at constituency to send text election results, but will only transmit scanned images of results declaration forms to the national tallying centers.
