Among key topics for discussion was the commission’s preparedness ahead of the elections, printing of the ballot papers, the voter register and the findings of an audit as conducted by KPMG.
Both Azimio and Kenya Kwanza had raised issues concerning the use of biometric system called on IEBC to incorporate the physical register as it would come handy incase of any challenges during the voting process.
IEBC promised availability of enough kits that will be used to replace any faulty ones that may be reported at the polling stations. The issue of network coverage was not left behind as it is essential during the transmission of results.
