It is through the public hearings that several issues concerning boundary delimitation were presented to IIBRC. Other critics of the Report have cited lack of adequate consultation between IIBRC and the Kenyan public as the cause of their contest.1 General Views on the IIBRC Report The delimitation process and criteria adopted by IIBRC has been subjected to debate with remarks pitted against the proposed constituencies. (iv) The description of boundaries based on wards or sub-locations. The public hearings promoted advocacy. the proposals presented in the Report elicited several reactions from county to county. (iii) The treatment of Cities and urban areas in a similar way (definition of cities not agreed on). In particular. procedures and principles guiding the public hearings were determined and published beforehand. the public hearings afforded the IIBRC unrivalled opportunity on a nation-wide scale to engage in public information. and used verbatim audio-visual recordings of all the proceedings.

Emerging Issues (Acording to the JLA Report)

Subukia & Rongai  There was a mix-up in the transfer of divisions, locations and sub-location and  Minority group interests were not considered (Ogiek) Naivasha  Community of interest, Historical, Economical and cultural ties not considered.  The area is home to diverse people groups, and would benefit from better representation.  Population quota; has high population of 226,056 and by the quota qualifies for 2 extra conctituencies instead of one as proposed. Molo  Re-drawing of boundaries: - one sub-location, Piape, was to be moved from Rongai to Njoro constituency but this was not done. Kuresoi  Community of interest, Historical, Economical and cultural Ties/Minorities/Marginalization not taken into consideration.  The minority group & marginalized in the area, the Ogiek, will be further marginalized as the new constituency, Njoro is bigger than the mother constituency, Molo, thus offering less chance of representation of this people.

(b) subject to the Constitution. According to the Report of the Task Force on Devolved Government (TFDG). the Commission is given the following mandate as regards completion of the first review (a) re-distribution of such wards or administrative units in the affected constituencies as may be appropriate. Under the first step. 2010 provides that the IEBC shall review the number. the Commission determined the total number of wards into which the country shall be divided. each of the 290 constituencies will have a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 5 wards. In this respect. an upper limit of 1.0 Introduction The criteria for delimitation of wards is provided for in Article 89 (5) and (6) of the Constitution of Kenya. as applicable. Article 89(12) of the Constitution defines ―population quota‖ by dividing the number of inhabitants of Kenya with the number of constituencies or wards. The Act requires that the Commission shoulr resolve all issues arising from the IIBRC review.1 IEBC Determination of County Assembly Wards The IEBC has applied a three-step process to determine the number of County Assembly Wards. Article 89(3) of the Constitution of Kenya.

000.628 has been arrived at by dividing the total national population by the total proposed number of wards. The approach therefore achieves equity of representation within the County and is therefore preferred by the IEBC.097 = 26.138 was determined by the Constitution of Kenya (Total national population divided by the total number of constituencies).465 including nominated councillors to about 2. the IEBC has been guided by the constitutional provision that the number of inhabitants of a constituency or Ward may be greater or lesser than the population quota by a margin of not more than 40 per cent for cities and sparsely populated areas and 30 per cent for the other areas.628 Total Number of Wards 1. The table below presents the proposed determination of wards by IEBC based on the above approach and deviation from the quota.610. The population quota for the Ward obtained using the formula below is consistent with the population quota for the constituency as provided for under the Section 27(1)(b) of the Sixth Schedule of the Constitution of Kenya. The proposed county wards are annexed.County. In computing the number of wards nationally. the population quota for the Ward which is 26. In a similar vein. This approach takes cognisance of the inherent inequities in the populations of various counties and the imbalances in each constituency. This is because counties were created by the Constitution without regard to their populations. The computation is based on a formula which serves to maintain equality between wards and the number of electors. For the constituency population quota.450 The IEBC obtained the number of wards applicable to each constituency by computing the proportion of the population of the constituency in relation to the total population of the County and multiplying by the number of wards which the County is entitled to. 177 . Total Population of Constituency Total Population of each County X Number of wards allocated each County Applying the above formula ensures that even the smallest County has the required members of the County Assembly to perform its function. The IEBC considers this national limit plausible as it enables a County to effectively fulfil its representation and oversight functions. a figure of 133. National Population as at 2009 Census =38. The TFDG in effect proposed to reduce Ward representatives from the current 3.

All stakeholders were requested to present to the Commission oral submissions or written submissions either as individuals or groups and the public invited to give presentations through scheduled public hearings in existing constituencies. Notably. the authority and criteria for delimitation of local authority electoral areas has been the same at that of Constituencies.2 With the promulgation of the Constitution of Kenya 2010.726 attended the public hearings. the Constitution of Kenya 2010 requires the Commission to consult all interested parties.4It is documented that the IIBRC held eight provincial visits and a total 106 public hearings whereof 20. In consideration of the criteria under Article 89 of the constitution. The objective of the public consultations was to collect views regarding electoral and administrative boundaries. the IIBRC was mandated to determine the names and boundaries of wards against the criteria provided under the Constitution 3also to generally apply in the delimitation of county wards. The Independence Constitution of Kenya provided key criteria to guide the delimitation process. Various boundary concerns were brought to the attention of the IIBRC as it emerged that Kenyans were aware of the historical injustices in the delimitation of electoral and administrative boundaries of Kenya. These criteria guided all the boundary reviews by the ECK and generally remained in place until the Constitutional Amendment of 29th December 2011 under which the criteria that guided the work of the IIBRC were enacted.2 Applicable Framework Many of the submissions received offered suggestions on delimitation with emphasis on constitutional criterion. followed by Constituency reviews in 1966 which then culminated in the creation of 210 Constituencies.0 Introduction The creation of electoral units in Kenya started with the creation of 117 Constituencies in 1963.

These were structured to clusters of a minimum of 6 to a maximum of 12 constituencies per public hearing based on vicinity of selected constituencies per region and were conducted for a consecutive period of 3months. land use and road networks and land cover for communications (TV.

Literature review undertaken not only covers the relevant documents cited under the IEBC Act but also covers maps and archival data on boundaries and boundary delimitation in Kenya.
