The Independent, Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) in Kenya says it will announce all the results of the Kenya 2013 General Election on Wednesday,Capital FM Kenya reports
Issack Hassan the IEBC chairman said Tuesday that the Returning Officers would be required to report to the national tallying centre at the Bomas of Kenya with all the results, for presidential, gubernatorial, senatorial, MPs, women representatives and county assembly representatives, which would then be announced by IEBC commissioners representing the various regions in the country.
He added that each of the IEBC commissioners would read the results of each of the constituencies according to the regions they supervise, as soon as they arrived at Bomas.
Earlier, media reports had indicated that IEBC computer servers had crashed because of the high capacity of results being transmitted but Hassan refuted these reports.
He maintained that the IEBC had back up data and had resorted to announcing the results through the Returning Officers to speed up the process and allay voter anxiety that seemed to have gripped the country.
He also assured Kenyans of credible results arguing that Returning Officers would announce the same results they would have transmitted electronically.
Meanwhile , the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has urged Kenyans to be patient and refrain from utterances likely to undermine the credibility of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
In a statement, Ban recognised extra efforts the IEBC took in ensuring the Kenyan General Election was conducted transparently and democratically.
