  5. General Elections
  6. The Constitution of Kenya, 2010 provides that a General Election shall be held on the second Tuesday of August every fifth year. However, the last General Election, which was the first elections held under the 2010 Constitution, was held on 4 March 2013. Six elections are held on the same day-the President (1), Senators (47), County Governors (47), and Members of National Assemblies or MPs (290), Members of County Assembly (1450) and Women County Representatives (47).
  7. Referendum
  8. A Referendum, also referred to as plebiscite, is a direct vote in which all electorates are asked to vote on a crucial national issue(s), usually a political proposal to amend of the Constitution in accordance with Article 256 or 257 of the Constitution. This may result in the adoption of a new constitution, a constitutional amendment, or a law. Kenya held a constitutional referendum in 2005 and in 2010.
  9. By-elections
  10. By-elections are held to fill a political office that has become vacant between two general elections. They can be as a result of the following:
  • When an incumbent dies or resigns
  • When the incumbent becomes ineligible to continue in office because of a recall, ennoblement, a serious criminal conviction, failure to maintain a minimum attendance, bankruptcy or mental incapacity
  • If an election is invalidated by a court of law on grounds of voting irregularities
  • The recall by the electorate of a Member of Parliament before the end of the term of the relevant House
  1. Other Elections
  2. IEBC is mandated to conduct elections to any elective body or office established by the Constitution, and any other elections as prescribed by an Act of Parliament. Recently, IEBC has conducted elections for the Kenya Football Federation (KFF), the Law Society of Kenya (LSK), Kenya Magistrates and Judges Association (KMJA), Church organizations and the Kenya Children Assembly (KCA).
  3. Why Register
  • Voting provides an opportunity to choose a leader of your choice
  • Voting provides an opportunity to vie in elections. By law, only registered voters are allowed to vie for elections.
  • You safeguard your rights and freedoms as provided for in the constitution
  • You give legitimacy to leaders. By electing their leaders, voters give their consent to be led by whoever they have chosen and to reject those who fail to sufficiently represent their interests.
  1. Standing for Elections
  2. All aspirants and political parties that intend to nominate a candidate for an elective post will observe the provisions of the Constitution, the Elections Act and all other written law in respect of the qualifications and disqualifications for that office. Part 111 of the Elections Act (2011) has details on: “Nomination of Candidates by Political Parties and Participation of Independent Candidates in Elections”. Candidates must meet the qualifications set for each of the six elective posts (President (1), Member of National Assembly (290), County Women Representative (47), County Governor (47), County Senator (47), Member of County Assembly (MCA-1450).
  3. Your Rights as an Aspirant
  4. The Constitution assures every citizen the right to free, fair and regular elections based on universal suffrage and the free expression of the will of the electors for—(a) any elective public body or office established under this Constitution; or (b) any office of any political party of which the citizen is a member. To enjoy the political right of vying for an elective post, one must be nominated by a registered political party or apply for nomination as an independent candidate. A person qualifies to be nominated as an independent candidate for presidential, parliamentary and county elections for the purposes of Articles 97, 98, 137, 177, and 180 of the Constitution if that person—
  5. has not been a member of any political party for at least three months preceding the date of the election;
  6. has submitted to the Commission on the day appointed by the Commission as the nomination day, a duly filled nomination paper as the Commission may prescribe;
  7. has submitted the symbol that the person intends to use during the election; and
  8. is selected in the manner provided for in the Constitution and as may be prescribed by the Commission.
  9. And independent candidate will also be to present a symbol for approval with the electoral management body.
  10. Political Parties
  11. The Constitution 2010 and the Political Parties Act, 2011 have brought about many new changes affecting formation, management and regulation of political parties in the country. Registered political parties, their officials, members, supporters and citizens need to know key information about these laws which include members’ rights and obligations. The idea that the affairs of political parties need to be governed by law is a relatively recent development in Kenya. Initially, political parties were registered under, and governed by, the Societies Act. Political parties did not have legal personality or perpetual succession. Basically, political parties belonged to individuals and some unscrupulous party leaders formed parties with a view to selling them for monetary gain. With the emergence of multiparty rule and the mushrooming of political parties that followed, a need for greater clarity on the rights and duties of political parties also emerged. The Political Parties Act 2007 (PPA 2007), which became operational on 1 July 2008, superseded the Societies Act with regard to the formation, management and regulation of political parties. The PPA 2007 provided a legal framework for registration, regulation and funding of political parties and established the Office of Registrar of Political Parties (ORPP), responsible for implementing and enforcing the law. The Political Parties Act, 2011 provides the institutional, legal and regulatory framework for registration, regulation and funding of political parties in Kenya. The Act is the primary legal reference for management of political parties in accordance with Articles 91 and 92 of the Kenya Constitution 2010, which envisages well governed political parties that respect internal democracy and their constitutional status in the Kenyan political system. The Act seeks to address gaps that were inherent in Political Parties Act 2007 such as lack of clarity on mergers and coalitions. Under the Act, political parties have legal personality and therefore can sue, be sued and own property, among other functions.
