The court has rejected a request to stop the ongoing vetting of the new IEBC chairperson.

High Court Judge John Mativo declined to issue the temporary orders sought urging the parties named in the case to file grounds of objection in the next seven days.

Justice Mativo said that the orders sought will affect persons who are not parties to the case.

Proceedings resume next week 17 to confirm compliance and for directions on hearing.

Former LSK Secretary Apolo Mboya sought to stop the process saying that the selection panel exceeded its powers and mandate by re-advertising the positions of Chairperson.

“Unless IEBC is restrained the candidate nominated for appointment as chairperson and commissioners of the IEBC will be vetted and appointed in contravention of the constitution,” Mboya argues.
