Martha Karua has once again, broken her silence on the elections which her coalition Azimio lost to William Ruto.
Karua has now said that they will accept the court ruling on the petition they will file at the Supreme Court,even if it is against them.
She added that Kenyans decided and it is now upon the courts to decide whether the results were free and fair or cooked.
According to Article 163 (3) of the Kenyan constitution, candidates must submit petitions with the supreme court in order to contest an election.
Odinga has until August 22 to file a judicial petition.
The petitioner will have 24 hours to serve the parties after filing the petition.
The supreme court judges would then render a verdict within fourteen days of the matter being filed. A new vote must be held within 60 days if the court decrees an annulment.
On Monday, 15 August, four IEBC commissioners dissociated themselves from the presidential election results that were revealed. They've since provided four justifications for their decision.
The four, led by Juliana Cherera, the deputy chair of the IEBC, have contended that the results used to designate Ruto as president-elect were opaque.
They accuse Chebulati, the chair of the IEBC, of concealing the results and not consulting them before announcing Ruto as the winner.
