Kenyans abroad urged to register as voters

Posted by African Press International on April 13, 2007

Nairobi (Kenya) Kenyans living in the diaspora were on Thursday urged by the Electoral Commission of Kenya (ECK) to register as voters in order to be legible to vote for the elections scheduled for December.

Samuel Kivuitu, the ECK chairman, said that there is no law that forbids them to vote in the elections and that all they need is to meet the condition of residency as provided in the constitution.

“There is no law which forbids them to register and vote ; all they need to do is to comply with the provisions stipulated in the constitution regarding residency,” said Kivuitu.

Addressing the press in Nairobi, Kivuitu warned that issues of cost effectiveness may arise but that was a matter of policy to be decided by the government and parliament.
