The electoral commission has been stopped from gazetting the names of nominated members to the County Assemblies. The High Court order locks out the political party nominees from the scheduled swearing-in of elected county representatives until a petition filed by the National Gender and Equality Commission is determined. Judges Isaac Lenaola, David Majanja and Mumbi Ngugi said in their ruling: “We direct the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission not to gazette nominees of various parties to County Assemblies until the determination of the petition. The order however does not stop the scheduled swearing-in of elected County Assembly representatives,” ruled the judges.
