Why IEBC Cannot Announce The Final Presidential Election Results

Kenya’s August 9th presidential contest is officially between the Kenya Kwanza’s William Samoei Ruto and the Azimio la Umoja’s Raila Amollo Odinga based on the transient tallies from ultimate media houses. 

The other 2 presidential competitors, Prof George Wajackoyah and Pastor David Mwaure, are at a far third and fourth respectively.

By law, the electoral body IEBC has up to 7 days to announce the victor of the presidential race. However, IEBC boss Wafula Chebukati earlier this morning assured Kenyans that the results will be announced as soon as possible.

For the IEBC to declare official results, all the Form 34As and Form 34Bs from returning officials across the nation have to be submitted and verified before tallying.

Kenyans went to the poll on Tuesday August 9th, to cast their votes for 6 positions with a keen eye standing on the top seat race.

According to KIEMS kit data, 14,164,561 out of the 22,120,458 registered voters cast their votes (65.4% turnout). IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati can only announce the final presidential results after all the form 34Bs are verified and tallied.

Below are some links where Kenyans can watch the real time results being tallied by Citizen tv, NTV and KTN respectively.
