The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has been sued over its two-thirds gender policy, with only one day remaining for political parties to comply. Adrian Kamotho, a Nairobi-based lawyer, is also appealing the IEBC’s directive to punish all candidates by excluding them from running in the general elections if the sponsoring party fails to comply with the requirement by Thursday, May 12. The lawyer requested that the court dismiss the notice, claiming that it is harsh and unreasonable.
