Wafula Chebukati and six other Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) commissioners will officially take office today after being sworn into office by Chief Justice David Maraga tomorrow.
The event to take place at the Supreme Court will mark the beginning of a busy year for the commission which comes into office barely seven months to the General Election.
Other than the chair, the commissioners include Consolata Bucha, Boya Molu, Roselyn Akombe, Paul Kurgat, Margaret Mwachanya and Abdi Guliye.
They are coming into office as the commission is undertaking the second and final mass voter registration that has seen both sides of the political divide marshal their supporters to register in large numbers.
This is expected to give the electoral body an impetus as they join forces with the secretariat headed by Ezra Chiloba which was involved in most of the activities after the removal of the commission head by the former chair Issack Hassan.
President Uhuru Kenyatta appointed the new commissioners on Wednesday, a day after Parliament approved their nomination.
He said reconstitution of the Commissioners was a bi-partisan process that breathes new life into the electoral body while at the same time restoring confidence in its capacity and competence to deliver on its Constitutional and Statutory mandates.
Key among the decisions they are to make will be on diaspora registration, which is expected to commence after the current voter registration exercise is completed on February 14.
They will also be expected to lead several other activities that includes audit of the voter register and nomination in cases where parties will invite them to foresee.
