Kenya to hold fresh presidential election in October

Kenya’s electoral body, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has set a date for a fresh presidential election in the country as ordered by the country’s Supreme Court last week.
The electoral commission said on Monday that the repeat election will be carried out on October 17, and only President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga will be on the ballot.
Last Friday, the Kenya’s Supreme Court annulled President Kenyatta’s official win in the August 8 polls by 1.4 million votes, saying the IEBC neglected to conduct the election in a manner within the dictates of the constitution.
The commission said it is revising the operational and procedural requirements for the conduct of the fresh election.
