MULTI-AGENCY TEAM TO VET POLITICAL ASPIRANTS UNVEILED

A multi-agency team has been formed to vet political aspirants for the August 2017 General Election. The agency, which was unveiled yesterday, comprises the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission, Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), Office of the Attorney-General, Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions and the Registrar of Political Parties.

Its primary objective is to ensure compliance with the leadership and integrity provisions under the Constitution of Kenya 2010, the Elections Act 2011, the Leadership and Integrity Act 2012, and the Political Parties Act, 2011.

Further, it will seek to enhance collaboration in the enforcement of Chapter Six of the Constitution (on leadership and integrity) and other relevant laws, as well as provide an integrated, effective and efficient mechanism for resolving issues of leadership and integrity in the electoral process.

IEBC Chairperson Wanyonyi Wafula Chebukati, addresses the multi-agency team.

The team, referred to as the Chapter Six Working Group, was unveiled during a meeting held at a Nairobi hotel. It resolved to work together under the auspices of the Working Group on Election Preparedness to ensure that the goals of Chapter Six of the Constitution are realized.

It further resolved to make available fully resourced dedicated service centers to support the electoral verification and clearance process. On its part, the IEBC committed to provide a central coordinating facility for the key agencies within one week.

The collaborating agencies are expected to publish a guideline on compliance with leadership and integrity requirements.

EACCs Chairperson, Rtd. Archbishop Eliud Wabukala, noted that state officers carry the highest level of responsibility in the management of state affairs and therefore their conduct should be beyond reproach. He affirmed EACCs support for IEBC in the verification exercise and cautioned that the Commission would not be sympathetic to aspirants who do not meet the leadership and integrity threshold. He appealed to all political parties to nominate candidates of high integrity, noting that Kenyans deserve servant leadership.

The Chair urged Kenyans to vote for leaders with integrity and to support the state institutions as they execute their respective mandates.
