Chebukati revisits IEBC tallying in a paper on 2022 polls

Former Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Wafula Chebukati has said that the 2022 General Election was the freest in Kenya’s history.

This was revealed in a post he shared on his social media account from his recent presentation of a scholarly study on Kenya’s 2022 elections titled ‘The Role of Technology in Improving the Integrity of the Electoral Process in Kenya’.

According to Chebukati, the achievement of the electoral body was propagated by the use of electronic devices in identifying voters and transmitting results, which improved its efficiency and credibility.

“In August 2022, Kenya held the freest, fairest and most credible election in its history. I recently presented a paper titled “Role of Technology in Improving the Integrity of the Electoral Process in Kenya,” Chebukati said.

“This paper is about the 2022 elections in Kenya and in particular the transmission of tally reports. It analyses the system employed, how it was implemented and how it helped increase election integrity. The paper highlights the importance of speed, transparency, and audibility in making tally reports publicly available, and sets standards that can be applied to election practices in other countries in the region” Read the abstract of the paper. 

He added that in his six-year term as the electoral body chairperson, the 2022 election was far different from the previous elections that he was in charge of.

In his presentation, the former chairperson focused on the role of technology in the transmission of results during the election, where he stated that it was timely and reduced tension among Kenyans.

“The paper highlights the importance of speed, transparency and also stability in making the tally reports publicly available and set a standard that can be applied to election practice in other countries in the region.” Chebukati said.

He added that transparency in every election is key to trusting the outcome of the exercise, which can be achieved through timely publication of election results, and that delay in submitting the results leads to misinformation and disinformation.

His remarks are in line with the recent statement made by the US Ambassador to Kenya Me Whitman, where she lauded the country for the historic achievement through credible election.

However, the opposition side led by the Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Coalition has remained consistent in its deniability as far as the 2022 presidential results are concerned.

The opposition has maintained that President William Ruto did not win the election, a stand that was overturned by the courts.
