Kenya election board CEO rejected by opposition goes on leave ahead of poll

Read Time:27 Second

NAIROBI (Reuters) – The chief executive of Kenya’s election board, Ezra Chiloba, who the opposition has demanded must be fired before an Oct. 26 election, is taking three weeks of leave, a source close to him told Reuters on Friday.

The Supreme Court annulled an Aug. 8 vote on Sept. 1 and ordered a re-run within 60 days. The opposition, led by Raila Odinga, has said it will boycott the election unless several demands, including the sacking of Chiloba, are met.
