Court orders IEBC to include Ekuru Aukot in repeat poll

Court orders IEBC to include Ekuru Aukot in repeat poll”

Dr Aukot moved to court after the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission gazetted President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga and their running mates, as the only persons eligible for the repeat poll. "But now that the High Court has quashed that and said we can all run, then Dr Kaluyu and I will definitely be on the ballot", said Mr Kariara.

He said that ThirdWay Alliance still believes that individuals at the IEBC who conducted shoddy polls need to be dealt with before next presidential election conducted.

His party called for fresh elections with a completely new election board, blaming some officials there for the irregularities that caused the Supreme Court to cancel Kenyatta's win. "Seal the loophole and invite the willing", Dr Kaluyu had tweeted on September 7 after IEBC gazetted the two candidates.

Former US-based Kenyan scholar Japheth Kavinga Kaluyu and his running mate Muthiora Kariara have announced they are back in the presidential race for the October 26th fresh poll following a High Court ruling on Wednesday that allowed all candidates in the August 8th election be om the ballot for the repeat election.

"The Supreme Court has shot itself in the foot because their determination was based on the fact that the August 8 poll was not done in accordance with the Constitution and therefore all of us who contested in the original election ought to have been in the Gazette Notice", Aukot said following CJ Maraga's directives last month.

Judge says he sees no reason why Aukot should not be included in the repeat presidential election.
