The organization also urged Raila Odinga to concede defeat out of the responsibility and statemanship.
"William Ruto has been declared the new president of Kenya by the electoral authority IEBC Kenya, which has confirmed the election's results. Let us have faith in the constitution and the rule of law. Mr. Raila Odinga should concede out of democratic responsibility," the International Human Rights Foundation statement read.
On Monday, Kenya's electoral commission announced that Deputy President William Ruto won the August 9 elections.
The declaration indicated that Ruto had defeated two of his former bosses and friends, perennial presidential candidate Raila Odinga and his backer, incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta, in the battle to become the country's fifth president.
Ruto ignored ethnicity, a crucial component in Kenyan politics, on the campaign road.
The Nation's study reveals that two-thirds of Ruto's votes came from 10 counties in the Mount Kenya region, which are predominantly populated by Kikuyus, and seven counties in the Rift Valley, which are predominantly inhabited by Kalenjins.
