The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) officials explained that the deal had already been signed and that it was way behind its electoral cycle schedule.
IEBC chairman says his office will fire any commission staff accused of influencing the tender, which was awarded to Dubai-based Al-Ghurair.
Thirdway Alliance presidential candidate Ekuru Aukot proposed that the IEBC use the United Nations to print the ballots, a body he said will be above the individual political interests.
