IEBC responds to claims marked ballot papers were impounded in Bungoma
The IEBC has said ballot papers that will not bear the Commission’s official stamp will be declared invalid.
IEBC chief executive officer Ezra Chiloba urged returning officers to validate and notify all presiding officers when they come across such ballot papers.
The Commission denied claims that marked ballot papers were found in Bungoma terming the information fake news.
Chiloba said all ballot papers were safe cautioning Kenyans to desist from spreading false information on social media.
On Saturday reports hinted that ballot papers marked in favour of a Jubilee candidate in Bungoma County had been impounded.
In a Saturday statement, the Commission also said the media will have access to results declared at the 290 constituencies across the country.
The media, Chiloba said will have access to the poll results via a link issued on Saturday before relaying them through their media houses.
“We are expanding the capacity of our website to enhance public access of polls results. Media houses will be given the link by 5pm,” announced IEBC on Saturday.
