Karua Explains What They'll Do If the Supreme Court Upholds Ruto's Victory as President-elect

Karua has now said that, even if the court rules against them, they will still accept the decision on the petition they will make with the Supreme Court.

She continued by saying that Kenyans made the decision, and that it is now up to the courts to determine if the results were truly free and fair or rigged.

In order to run for office, candidates must file petitions with the supreme court, as stated in Article 163 (3) of the Kenyan Constitution.

The deadline for Odinga to submit a judicial petition is August 22.

After submitting the petition, the petitioner has 24 hours to serve the parties.

The judges of the supreme court would then issue their decision within fourteen days of the case being filed. If the court rules to nullify the election, a fresh vote must be held within 60 days.

Four IEBC commissioners distanced themselves from the announced presidential election results on Monday, August 15. Since then, they have offered four arguments for their choice.

The four have argued that the outcomes used to name Ruto as president-elect were murky, led by Juliana Cherera, the deputy chair of the IEBC.

They assert that Chebulati, the IEBC head, withheld the results and did not consult them before declaring Ruto.
