IEBC’s list of recommendations ahead of the 2027 elections

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has released a post-election evaluation report that outlines several recommendations for future elections in Kenya.

The report emphasizes the importance of corporate governance.

It suggests that Commissioners be appointed to the Commission at least two years before the general election, in accordance with best practices and the IREC recommendation.

The report also recommends that IEBC continually compare itself to other Electoral Management Bodies (EMBs) in order to adopt the best election laws and procedures.

It suggests that the legal framework be improved by collaborating more closely with the Parliament to expedite suggested amendments and that the IEBC strengthen its partnerships with the ORRP and Chapter Six Institutions in terms of nominations.

In terms of security, the report advises the IEBC to tighten access controls at the tallying center to ensure that only authorized personnel have access. It also suggests that on election day, special voting procedures be used by the IEBC.

The report also advises the IEBC to operationalize the IEBC Fund, buy a building owned by the Commission, and provide staff with adequate security and risk allowance during the election period.

The report also recommends that the IEBC improve inclusivity in the electoral process by providing PWDs with the necessary assistive devices and measures, such as special voting booths, braille, and audio and visual materials explicitly made for them to ensure their privacy and secrecy.

Additionally, the report suggests creating a national research hub on elections and incorporating a voter education curriculum into the curriculum.

In order to ensure the security of general elections, the report also suggests that IEBC adopt a Joint Security Response Approach throughout the electoral cycle.

The report is a comprehensive analysis of the recent elections and offers recommendations on improving future elections in Kenya.

“The findings and recommendations of the PEE report will be shared with State Agencies, Development Partners and other stakeholders involved in the electoral process in Kenya to better our election architecture as we move our country towards a stronger democracy,” immediate former IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati said during the launch.
