Nairobi - Members of Parliament on Thursday amended the Election Act to exempt Senate, Parliamentary and County Ward Assembly seat aspirants from holding post secondary school education credentials for next year’s elections.
According to Capital News, this now means aspirants will only have to take a competence exam to be administered by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to be cleared to vie.
Political parties will also now be the ones to draft nominations rules which will be submitted to the polls body.
