In preparations for the conduct of 2022 polls, Kenya’s Independence Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) is inducting 64 newly recruited officers on the electoral process in a workshop in Naivasha, Northwest of Nairobi.
The new officers are expected to familiarize themselves with activities of pre-election, during the election and post-election phases.
The new staff are drawn from managers, Constituency Elections Coordinators (CECs), Constituency Administrative Assistants (CAAs), Procurement Officers, Accountants, and Warehouse Assistants.
“Constituency Elections Coordinators (CECs) and Constituency Administrative Assistants (CAAs) will then transit to serve as Returning Officers and Deputy Returning Officers during the elections,” said the Commission.
The induction program covers Human Resources and the Electoral Process discussing the election cycle, election technology, election materials, election officials, election management best practices and simulations of the electoral process.
The Induction Program was overseen by Commissioner Boya Molu, Directors Lorna Onyango, Rasi Masudi and Manager Training – Jacktone Nyonje.
The workshop aims to make new staff understand Electoral Process and procedure, familiarize with election materials and technology, share work place etiquette and electoral management best practices, understand IEBC stakeholders and know Human resources practice in the Commission.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
