And now photos of Deputy President William Ruto's tallying center have been posted online.a photo shared online shows some people inside a well equipped parallel tallying center in undisclosed location.
IEBC chair had said that the media and other parties are allowed to tabulate their provisional results from IEBC's form 34A, but only IEBC announcements will be final.
The official results have not yet been released, but according to local media, the two leading contenders are neck and neck. Comparing Tuesday's election to the 2017 election, voter turnout was disappointingly low.
The two leading candidates in Kenya's presidential election, Deputy President William Ruto and Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, are in a very close fight, according to preliminary figures.
Official results have not yet been released, however the winning candidate must receive fifty percent plus one of the votes cast. Vote counting and tallying are currently occurring.
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) of Kenya must announce election results for 290 seats. Due to a tedious procedure, the commission has not yet produced many outcomes.
Once the votes have been counted, the returning officer must take a photo of the final tally sheet and email it to both the constituency and national tallying centers.
But the media, political parties and civil society groups continue to compile their tallies using results declared at the more than 45,000 polling stations.
The final result from the IEBC is expected in days, but the commission has up to a week to declare the official results.
