I have shared below the details of my meeting with Mr. Hassan (Chair - IEBC) as well as Mr. Oswago (CEO-IEBC).

The two IEBC officials have come up with a brief on how the Kenya Diaspora will participate in the next General election. Here's the brief:

- Registration and voting will be done at Kenya Embassies and Consulates abroad.
- Registration will require an applicant to produce a Kenyan passport.
- Kenyan's abroad will cast their ballot for a Presidential candidate only.
- No e-voting at this time but physical ballots.
- Returning Officers will be nominated by IEBC. Some Embassy officials might be chosen to be Returning Officers.
- Election date will be gazetted as March 2013.
