The Commission however, noted that it cannot compel a candidate to participate in an election. The law allows a candidate to withdraw his/her candidature by delivering to the Commission a duly filled Form 24A.

The 290 constituency Returning Officers will oversee the forthcoming election as IEBC appeals for calm and dialogue among all players to ensure that elections are successfully held and for the country to move forward.
