NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 15 – The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission is currently meeting with representatives of presidential aspirants.

Issues being discussed in the closed-door meeting include the implementation of the KPMG audit report on the voters register and award of the ballot printing tender to Al Ghurair Printing and Publishing Limited.

National Super Alliance leader Raila Odinga who is vying on an Orange Democratic Movement ticket in the forthcoming presidential election has challenged the award of the tender to the Dubai-based firm alleging it has links with President Uhuru Kenyatta.

IEBC Chairperson Wafula Chebukati has however disputed the claims saying the award of the tender was primarily on the basis of the capacity of the firm to deliver.
