- Earlier, ODM leader Raila Odinga had asked the commissioners to give the sessions happening at County Hall a widebert.
- Raila said the conduct of the commission was part of the election petition and only the commissioners were found to have committed any offence.
The four embattled IEBC commissioners on Thursday afternoon boycotted the hearings for their removal by the Justice and Legal affairs Committee.
Vice chairperson Juliana Cherera and commissioners Francis Wanderi, Irene Masit and Justus Nyang'aya are facing petitions for their removal from office.
Earlier, ODM leader Raila Odinga had asked the commissioners to give the sessions happening at County Hall a wide berth.
"We advised the commissioners to boycott it in the interests of constitutionalism and rule of Law," he said.
Raila had said by summoning the commissioners, Parliament is usurping the role of a tribunal.
"They are trying to prejudice whatever tribunal could be formed. Parliament roles must be limited to summoning the petitioners and deciding whether the issues raised warrant the setting up of a tribunal," he said.
Raila said the conduct of IEBC was part of the election petition and none of the commissioners was found to have committed any offence but Chebukati.
"Only IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati was found to have acted unilaterally, this problem is therefore politically motivated and a continuation of the witchhunt mission that President Ruto is on," he said.
"It will turn into a native partisan fight."
Raila said its a time to unify the country and not fight each other.
"This is a time when we need to unify the country and tackle our problems. Infact this country needs to move on and UDA must allow it to move on," he said.
