As part of its ongoing efforts to improve the electoral process, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission has collaborated with the National Police Service (NPS) and other security sector players to implement an elaborate program known as the Election Security Arrangement Project (ESAP).
“To this aim, the inter-agency team is now on a retreat in Kisumu County, where they will review and produce elections security training material,” the IEBC stated.
The team is working on a strategy paper for a public awareness and sensitization campaign on election security, as well as a communications draft for the International Election Commission to be shared with the general public and Special Interest Groups.
In addition, the ESAP team met in Mombasa for a planning meeting, held high-level discussions with IEBC Commissioners and top leadership from the National Police Service, and reviewed ESAP Materials (including the Handbook on Election Security, Election Security Guide/Police Role Card, training manual, and joint implementation plan).
Kenya will have its general elections on August 9, 2022, to elect the country’s president, governors, senators, members of parliament, women representatives, and members of county assemblies.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
