NASA parallel tallying centre plans get a nod


NASA parallel tallying centre plans got a nod following a meeting between the IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati and opposition chiefs on Thursday.
Chebukati said the opposition was free to monitor, tally and verify results of the August 8 general election but only IEBC could announce the results.
“Political parties and media may monitor, tally and verify the results for the own internal use. However, what is recognised is that it is the mandate of the IEBC to announce and declare the results of an election,” said Chebukati while addressing the press.

The coalition said they were planning to deploy 10 agents in each polling station in order to help transmit live results to the parallel tallying centre.
