Karua explains what will happen if the Supreme Court upholds Ruto's election as the next president.

Karua has now stated that they will accept the verdict on the petition they will file with the Supreme Court even if the court rules against them.

Kenyans made the choice, she said, and it is now up to the courts to decide whether the results were actually free and fair or rigged.

According to Article 163 (3) of the Kenyan Constitution, candidates must submit petitions to the supreme court in order to run for office.Odinga has until August 22 to file a judicial petition.The petitioner has 24 hours to serve the parties after filing the petition.

The highest court's judges would then render their judgment within 14 days of the case's filing. If the election is declared invalid by the court, a new election must be held within 60 days.

On Monday, August 15, four IEBC commissioners declared their disagreement with the declared outcomes of the presidential election. Since then, they have provided four justifications for their selection.

The four, led by Juliana Cherera, the deputy chair of the IEBC, have stated that the results used to declare Ruto the president-elect were ambiguous.

They claim that before announcing Ruto, IEBC director Chebulati suppressed the results and failed to contact them.
