The Election Observation Group has backed calls to resolve the political standoff over the resignation of Independent Election and Boundaries Commission officials.

ELOG said such talks are not unconstitutional as is being alleged by President Uhuru Kenyatta and other Jubilee leaders, and has appealed for an all-inclusive dialogue to resolve the row over the electoral process.

Speaking on behalf of ELOG at a press conference on Sunday, Prof Musa Iddi called for a clear agenda for the dialogue to ensure the country conducts a free, fair and transparent election come next year.

They further demand that EACC shares results of its probe on alleged involvement of IEBC bosses in the Sh50 million ballot printing tender scam, dubbed chicken gate, so that those who were mentioned can step aside.

ELOG Director Brian Weke however opposed demos by CORD leaders to demand IEBC disbandment set for tomorrow (Monday), while at the same time condemning the excessive use of force to quell demos by the police.
