Kenya πŸ‡°πŸ‡ͺ election: Late court bid to halt poll

1 min read

Kenya’s Supreme Court will hold a last-minute hearing to decide whether the re-run of the presidential election can go ahead.
Chief Justice David Maraga said the 8 August election had not been “conducted in accordance with the constitution” and declared it “invalid, null and void”.
The Supreme Court has agreed to hear the last-minute petition, which questions whether the electoral commission and its chairman will be able to conduct a free and fair election on Thursday.
The main opposition candidate Raila Odinga is boycotting what he calls a “sham election… which will not represent the will of the people”.
The petitioners are asking the court to clarify its 2013 interpretation of the constitution – that if a candidate drops out, the whole months-long process should begin again, rather than simply holding a re-run.
