Big Win For Raila in Bipartisan Talks

ODM Party leader Hon. Raila Odinga recently won a crucial victory in the ongoing Bipartisan talks, which is a significant development for Kenya’s political landscape.

The appointment of commissioners for the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) is the main accomplishment of this victory.

The breakthrough was when Hon Amos Wako, a former attorney general, suggested a paradigm shift in the selection procedure. Wako recommended that political parties take the initiative in proposing their top candidates for IEBC commissioner roles.

With the current system, there are worries about President William Ruto’s possible influence on the appointment procedure. This proposal would change that.

This proposed change is evidence of Raila Odinga’s ongoing allegations that Ruto wants to have undue influence over the upcoming general election in 2027.

It is believed that allowing political parties to nominate candidates for IEBC positions is a step in the right direction toward promoting an impartial and open election process.

This significant development was covered by, who wrote, “Former Attorney General Amos Wako submits proposal to the National Dialogue Committee calling for political parties to be allowed to select IEBC commissioners.

This submission to the committee strengthens the growing consensus that reviewing the current appointment procedure is crucial for making sure that an election is fair and credible.

All eyes are on the potential transformation of the IEBC commissioner appointment process, which could have an impact on the credibility of Kenya’s future elections, as the bipartisan talks continue.
