Kenya Human Rights Commission filed a case in court seeking to stop IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati from announcing the results of the presidential elections before making public the required documents.
The commission wants Chebukati to make forms 34A and 34B from the constituency returning officers available to the public before they announce the results.
The Commission and Inuka Kenya ni Sisi argue that the only way to secure the vote is by making the forms available for public scrutiny. They want the forms made available through the public portal.
They are seeking implementation of a court of appeal decision between IEBC and Maina Kiai by ensuring that the final results tallied at the constituency level are available to the public, media, and other stakeholders for verification.
This, they explain, will create transparency and reduce the chances of interference by 'rogue employees of IEBC.
"It is necessary for the will of the people to be secured by ensuring that the results from the constituency tallying centres will be uploaded and made available for download to ensure that stakeholders can tally and confirm the veracity of the results," they say.
Those sued in the case are IEBC and Chebukati.
The commission argues that the commission has the resources and capacity to ensure that forms 34A and 34B are available to the public at the same time and are received from the different constituency returning officers.
"There is little evidence that the ills of the 2017 general elections have been rectified, noting the results of the KPMG audit that was recently conducted," they said.
The case is to be heard Monday before Milimani Judge Thande Mugure.
