Omtata wants formal resignation of IEBC officials who quit
The petition is also seeking court orders stopping IEBC from paying the three commissioners salaries and any benefits.
He says that failure by the three former commissioners to formally resign from office and hand over public assets to IEBC has made it impossible for the authorities responsible to announce vacancies in their offices and to commence the process of recruiting and appointing their replacements.
The three including IEBC vice chairperson Connie Nkatha Maina said they had left the commission because they have no faith in chairman Wafula Chebukati and his leadership.
Omtata claims that the three did not and have not formally written to the president or the IEBC tendering their resignations and that they continue to draw salaries and to enjoy benefits that come with the office of a commissioner of IEBC.
