IEBC wins case against Nasa on printing of presidential ballot papers

The Court of Appeal has overturned a High Court judgement blocking Al Ghurair of Dubai from printing presidential ballot papers.

The second highest court in the land on Tuesday said the High Court erred in granting orders on the grounds of public participation.

The judges ruled that public participation is not a requirement in direct procurement, which was applied by the electoral commission in awarding contract to Al Ghurair.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) had appealed nullification of the tender.

High Court judges Joel Ngugi, George Odunga, and John Mativo had made a finding that the commission failed to engage in public participation while awarding the tender.

They had directed IEBC to start the process afresh and come up with a framework for ensuring public participation.
