Kenya’s preparations for general elections in August face “a period of uncertainty” after the High Court nullified a ballot-paper printing contract, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission said.

The commission may appeal the ruling over the contract that had been awarded to Dubai-based Al Ghurair Printing and Publishing Co., IEBC spokesman Andrew Limo said in a statement e-mailed Monday. Kenya is scheduled to hold presidential and legislative elections on Aug. 8.
