President poll result may be first

07 December 2011, 09:40

Nairobi - Ahmed Isaack Hassan, Independent Electoral Boundary Commission(IEBC) chair on Tuesday revealed that the presidential results could be the first to be announced in the next elections before winners of other seats are known.

The news came as former South African Judge Johann Kriegler, who chaired the Independent Review Commission(IRC) warned that it would be more difficult to deal with violence this time round if adequate measures are not taken to ensure peaceful elections.

Speaking to Daily Nation, Hassan said they had requested the Committee of Experts(COE), to have elections for various seats held on different dates to give the commission adequate time to make the announcements, however, they were turned down as it could allow politicians to vie for more than one seat and trigger violence.
