"Use of public resources for personal campaigns at all levels from the presidency to the ward representative goes against the political parties Act," he said.
He said offenders can be fined Sh10 million or serve a six months jail term, or both.
The commissioner was speaking in Baringo County in a forum on sensitization on compliance with Political Parties Act.
The Commissioner cited illiteracy as the major obstacle facing IEBC ahead of the next general election but added that they will carry out civic education for voters.
He advised Kenyans registered into political parties without their consent to move to court and sue the given party.
"Any party found to have used dubious means to recruit members to comply is committing a serious offense and might be de-registered by the registrar of political parties," he said.
According to Information and Communication Technology (ICT) officer IEBC Mr. Josephat Nyongesa, one can verify his registration details at the party offices or alternatively access the information through the phone.
