Electoral Commission of Kenya ECK Chairman Samuel Kivuitu has vowed to stay put as the chair of the commission despite mounting pressure from various quarters to have the commission disbanded.

Speaking in Mombasa after a civil society group stormed a meeting by the commissioners calling for their immediate disbandment, Kivuitu said he would only resign if those elected during the 2007 elections will also do the same.

A seemingly relaxed Kivuitu however maintained he was not going to buckle under the pressure and will continue to serve as the commissioner until his term ends.
