Electoral commission Chairman Wafula Chebukati has dismissed calls for the resignation of commissioners and the secretariat.

Speaking for the first time after the Supreme Court upheld the election of President Uhuru Kenyatta, Mr Chebukati on Wednesday said the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) officials were in office legally.

Mr Chebukati, who spoke on the sidelines of the annual Jurists Conference at Serena Beach Hotel in Mombasa, said the IEBC did a commendable job presiding over two elections in three months.

He said they were waiting for the apex court’s full judgment to tell the country the commission’s roadmap and the way forward in terms of reforms.

“The Supreme Court confirmed the election of October 26 was done within the law and constitution,” said Mr Chebukati.
