Kenya’s Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has shown its readiness for the much anticipated 2022 General Election.

With 13 months away to the polls, the electoral body’s elaborate strategic plan is expected to cover the Elections Operations Plan (EOP) and the Boundaries Review Operations Plan (BROP) that provides a road map for the conduct of the poll.

While expressing confidence in its preparedness to handle the exercise, Acting IEBC Chief Executive Officer Marjan Hussein noted that the strategic plans which cover the years 2020 – 2024 will be instrumental in delivering a successful and credible poll.

“The plan sets strategic goals and objectives which are to be realised even as it also takes into consideration the dynamic nature of the electoral environment as well as the expectations of Kenyans for the impending electoral boundary review, referenda and the 2022 General Election,” he said during the launch at the Bomas of Kenya.
The Commission identified six strategic areas of focus in the implementation plans namely – strengthening corporate governance, strengthening the legal framework, effective conduction of elections, public outreach, equitable representation, and strengthening strategic operations.
Marjan noted that with the plans, the commission will be able to acquire the necessary skills, systems and resources that will aid them in effectively delivering on their mandate.

Commission Chairperson Wafula Chebukati sought stakeholders’ support in delivering a credible poll committed to ensuring that no technical issues particularly those relating to servers and transmission of results will be encountered again in the 2022 poll.
