Kenyan opposition leader want a good rerun delay

By on September 13, 2017

Kenya’s opposition presidential candidate, Raila Odinga, said the electoral authority should consider delaying the rerun of last month’s annulled presidential vote until the end of October to ensure it’s organized in a credible manner.

“It doesn’t have to be done on October 17,” Odinga said. “Time is not a constraint here. We have sufficient time to prepare and deal with these outstanding issues.”

Mister Odinga has called for Independent Electoral & Boundaries Commission officials including Chief Executive Officer Ezra Chiloba to be removed before the rerun takes place.

Kenya’s Supreme Court annulled the Aug. 8 presidential vote, in which President Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the winner, after finding the election hadn’t been conducted in accordance with the constitution.

The Sept. 1 ruling marked the first time an African court overturned the results of a presidential election.
