The repeat presidential polls will probably be held on October 26 and not on 17 as earlier announced.
The IEBC is expected to table the new election date in a meeting with NASA and Jubilee on Wednesday.
On Monday, the commission held a plenary where the electoral chiefs tentatively settled on the date.
Multiple sources within the IEBC told the Star that another meeting would be held today to firm up the date.
“Not conclusively decided but highly likely,” a senior official at the Commission told the Star when asked whether the date had moved to October 26.
Two commissioners also told the Star the same saying talks were in progress and a decision would be arrived on or before Wednesday.
During the meeting, OT Morpho, the supplier of electoral technology, tabled a report showing why the October 17 is not practical.
The French firm said that it needs more time to reset the electoral machines in preparation for the repeat presidential election.
The Firm had earlier written to the commission explaining why the date needs to be changed.
