DP asks government to allocate enough resources to IEBC

Deputy President William Ruto has asked Parliament to allocate enough resources to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to adequately conduct the voter registration exercise.

He said  IEBC should leave no stone unturned in ensuring the targeted 6 million newly eligible voters are registered.

Speaking during a Mt Kenya and Ukambani aspirants forum at his Karen office, Dr Ruto said majority of those targeted in the voter registration drive are young people who deserve the opportunity to define their future destiny.

“Parliament should allocate additional resources to IEBC to enable it to discharge its mandate and make sure no voter is denied the opportunity to vote next year,” said Dr Ruto.

He also asked IEBC to ensure that it has enough kits to register eligible Kenyans.
