In an advertisement that published by the Commission through a local daily on Friday, December 24th, the electoral body stated that it was looking for a suitable candidate who can assume the role even as the country heads to the polls in less than nine months.
“Pursuant to the provisions of Articles 248(2), 250 (12) and 252(1) (c) of the Constitution of Kenya and Sections 10(1), 11 and 12 of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Act of 2011, the Commission hereby invites applications for the position of Commission Secretary/ Chief Executive Officer,” part of the ad reads.
All the interested candidates have been advised to apply before or on January 22nd 2022.
