Political parties now have until the 27th of December to conduct their nomination of candidates for the Homa Bay senatorial by-election set for February 12, 2015.
The extension follows a High Court order requiring that IEBC extends the political party primaries by ten days.
ODM had sought the extension after the party’s botched nomination exercise.
The delivery of nomination papers to the IEBC will take place between January 15th and 16th, 2015.
Official campaigns will then kick off on 17th January 2015 and end by 10th February 2015 – 48 Hours to the date of the by-election.
The Homa Bay senatorial seat fell vacant following the death of Otieno Kajwang.
