"There Is No Winner Or Presidential Elect" Raila claims as He Reveals His next Move

Currently, Raila Odinga has rejected Chebukati's announcement of William Ruto as the new president.

Additionally, Raila Odinga stated that the results are invalid and should be overturned in court.

"Our stand in Azimio is that the IEBC results were invalid, court of law must invalidate the Wafula Chebukati statistics because they are invalid and illegal. There is neither a legally and validly declared winner nor a president-elect in our opinion "Raila said.

Ruto was declared President-elect after surpassing the "50% plus 1" constitutional threshold, which stipulates that in order to win a presidential election, a candidate must receive at least 50% of the votes cast in addition to an additional vote.

The United Democratic Party candidate received 7,176,141 votes (50.49 percent), beating out his nearest rival, Raila Odinga of Azimio, who garnered 6,942,929 votes (48.85 percent).

A seasoned opposition leader named Odinga was making an attempt at his fifth bid for office with the backing of the Jubilee Party, which is headed by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission chairman, Wafula Chebukati, addressed the nation at 6:00 p.m., three hours later than originally scheduled, and reported that Ruto received 25% of the vote in twenty-four counties, in accordance with the requirement to reach the threshold in half of the counties.

Ruto was declared the president-elect by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) following around six days of voting at the National Voting Entry of Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi.

The leader of the Kenya Kwanza party received more than 25 percent of the vote in 39 of the 47 counties.
