In what may rattle the TNA to the core, the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy, CORD today officially petitioned parliament to disband the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission. The nine commissioners include Chairman Isaack Hassan and commissionersÂ Yusuf Abdulrahman Nzibo, Mohammed Alawi Hussun, Abdullahi M. Sharawe, Lilian Bokeeye Mahiri-Zaja, Thomas Letangule, Joyce Muthoni Wangai, Albert C. O. Bwire and Kule Galma Godana to be members of the IEBC.
IEBC, formed in 2011, succeeded the interim boundaries body which oversaw the 2010 constitution. Key players in its formation included representatives of then PNU and ODM, as well as the JSC, the association of professional societies in East Africa and the anti-graft body, EACC. President Kibaki nominated Mwanyengela Ngali and Prof Marion Wanjiku Mutugi to represent PNU while then Prime Minister Raila Odinga was represented by Dr Ekuru Aukot and Ms Rosa Akinyi Buyu.
The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) sent Â High Court judge Isaac Lenaola and Â Magistrate Emily Ominde while the Association of Professional Societies of East African were represented by Dr William Okello Ogara and Ms Sophie Njeri Moturi
Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission Advisory Board was represented byÂ Ms Irene Cheptoo Keino andÂ Mr Charles Kariuki Wambugu.
In the mix, albeit low key, is believed to be URP wing of the Jubilee coalition.
