IEBC has been barred from ending the voter registration exercise, which was to wind up tomorrow.
This comes after a voter Patrick Cherono, through lawyer Kairia Nabasenge, appealed that the electoral body had not met its target of registering at least six million new voters by November 2.
As of Sunday evening, the commission had only netted 1.14 million new voters.
Cherono sued the IEBC and parliament, which is the sole funder of the exercise.
Today, Justice Eric Ogolla of the High Court in Eldoret issued orders prohibiting the exercise and will remain in place until November 9, when the case will be heard.
Meanwhile, a couple of leaders have joined hands since last week to advocate for the registration extension.
On Sunday, an IEBC commissioner proposed the extension, a move to give college students more time to register.
