Nairobi - The electoral body has defended its move to single-source for ballot papers from a British firm instead of following the usual bureaucracy involved in an open tendering process.
According to Daily Nation, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission vice-chairperson Lillian Mahiri-Zaja said that time constraints ahead of the March 4, 2012 justify the decision.
Speaking on the sidelines of a meeting of experts on the East African Community principles for election observation and evaluation, Zaja said there was no time for IEBC to conduct an open tendering process.
