11 MPs disqualified by IEBC for failing to submit running mates by May 16 deadline.
Eight independents were disqualified.
IEBC chairperson Wafula Chebukati stated Monday they are dealing with timelines.
Chebukati claimed Mudavadi and Muturi's names were on the list because they submitted their information before supporting William Ruto's candidacy.

Chebukati stated candidates can't submit their running mates three months before the election.All presidential candidates must submit 2,000 signatures from at least 24 counties before running.
"Once the commission finishes verifying supporters, aspirants will have time to collect missing signatures." "If they miss the deadline, they will be disqualified," he warned.
The electoral bureau told presidential aspirants to submit 2,000 voter signatures by May 23.Signatures must include names, signatures, and ID or passport numbers.
55 presidential hopefuls submitted their names and running mates by May 16, 2022, according to IEBC.
