The Office of the Registrar of Political Parties has advised politicians vying for various seats in the August general elections to declare their parties before March 26, 2022.
The Registrar of Political Parties Anne Nderitu said the aspirants who fail to declare the same by the date risk being barred from participating in the August elections unless they run as independent candidates.
The party register is supposed to be submitted to the Registrar of Political Parties, 14 days before being submitted to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
“The Amendment Act says 14 days before the register is submitted to IEBC it should be submitted to the Registrar of Political Parties for certification and then the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC),” Nderitu said.
According to Nderitu, that placed the deadline for the declaration on March 26, 2022.
