“IEBC has acted contrary to the Constitution and Political Parties Act by its failure to include the photos, name of political party and symbol of the running mates on the ballot paper,” he said.

Kyunuve said the electoral body has published a sample of ballot papers for the presidential elections, which has not taken into consideration the specific details of deputy president.
