Former IEBC boss tells Chebukati what to do ahead of NASA’s Petition

Speaking during a conference at Cambridge, England, Hassan advised IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati to get unbiased lawyers ahead of NASA’s petition.

"As a rule, the EMB and its head should use the same lawyer in defending them and the head of the EMB should closely monitor the work of the lawyer."

Hassan further went on to emphasize on how important the defense strategy employed by the EMB (Electoral Management Body) and the head is.

"Since the lawyer will be speaking for you in court, you must ensure he does not bring his personal bias into your defense," he said.

He went on to add on the need for the support of local civil society groups and domestic election observers for the purposes of ensuring parallel vote tabulation as a way for the electoral body to handle claims of election rigging.

"This is especially in close elections where the margin of error is equal to the margin of victory. Their report can support your election results."

The former IEBC chair has been in Somalia working as a lead consultant with the electoral commission.
