Nine ambassadors and high commissioners from European countries and Canada have jointly lauded Kenya’s Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) for the way it conducted the August 9 General Election.
In a statement, the ambassadors said the open election has set a standard for the African continent.
“Kenya has set an example to the region and continent as a whole. We call upon all actors to uphold the spirit of peace in the coming weeks,” the statement read.
The nine represent Australia, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Netherland, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
They encouraged political parties and leaders to follow existing mechanisms for dispute resolution as guided by the Constitution.
