The Supreme Court was scheduled to deliver a detailed ruling Monday on the president's August petition and its reasons for its conclusions on the legal issues raised in the lawsuit.
A notice issued by the court clerk indicated that the judgment of the seven judges would be shared at 2:30 p.m. via email.
The verdict is a follow-up to a summary decision made on September 5 after a 14-day hearing.
In its abridged ruling, the court unanimously upheld the election of President William Ruto and dismissed a consolidated petition in multiple lawsuits filed by Ruto's main challenger, Raila Odinga, among others.
The petitioners had argued that the election was riddled with gross irregularities and that the exercise did not meet the constitutional threshold of a free, fair, transparent and auditable election.
However, the seven-member court found no discrepancies in the vote counts and no credible evidence that the electoral commission's computer systems and transmission network had failed or collapsed.
