CHEBUKATI now reveals who told him to print excess Forms 34A and 34B which will declare presidential results that had landed him in trouble with RAILA – Look!

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has now cleared the air on the printing of excess Forms 34A and 34B which are used to declare presidential results.

This is after Azimio candidate Raila Odinga raised concerns over the printing of excess forms with Deputy President William Ruto also agreeing with him; a move that prompted IEBC to convene an urgent meeting with their representatives to clear the air.

Addressing the press after the meeting, IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati revealed that the controversial decision to print two copies of Forms 34A and 34B was reached following an advisory by the Greece firm contracted to print electoral materials.

Chebukati further said that the extra booklet for form 34A will not be used.

The question of the extra forms arose during a lengthy discussion with the Azimio team representatives.

“We shall only use one booklet. The first booklet, for purpose of transmission of results for presidential elections,” he said.

Chebukati added that the second document will be sealed in a tamper-proof envelope upon arrival at the polling stations.

“It will be kept in the ballot box and sealed together with the materials at the end of polling. So the second booklet will not be used,” he added.

The IEBC Chair further said the original copy of the first booklet will be brought to the tallying centre for verification of results.

Chebukati said four copies of the 34A will be given to the agents of presidential candidates, one copy will be put and sealed in the ballot box together with the materials and the other copy will be posted on the door.

“We have agreed that the presiding officer will make arrangements to make a copy of the original for purpose of pasting on the door of the polling station before he leaves the station.”

The PRO said that Forms 34B are managed at the constituency by the Returning Officer, in charge of the various constituencies.

He assured that the form is being printed after Raila Odinga’s team on Wednesday claimed that it was not being printed.

“We want to state that 34B is being printed and will be delivered to the country together with the other materials remaining and then send directly to the constituency RO,” he said.

Chebukati clarifies that 34B was not meant to be packaged with 34A, saying it was meant to be used by the RO.

He said the Commission will work on and release a Gazette notice, regarding the changes.
