Chebukati Reveals How Many Days IEBC Has to Announce Winner of The Presidential Election

Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chair Wafula Chebukati has revealed the time the commission has been given by the law to verify and declare the results of the presidential election.

Chebukati said the Constitution requires the electoral body to announce the results of the presidential election within seven days after voting is closed.

He however said the commission will try to finish the exercise and announce the winner of the presidential election as soon as possible.

“The law requires that the Commission undertakes verification of presidential election results and declare the president elect within seven days after the close of the poll. However, the commission shall endeavor to conclude this exercise at the earliest time possible,” said Chebukati.

Chebukati speaking from Bomas of Kenya during a briefing further said the results that will be announced at polling stations will be final and cannot be changed by anyone.

The IEBC chairman has thanked Kenyans for being patient as the commission continues to announce the results once they have been verified.

“I want to thank Kenyans for the patience they have exercised as we undertake this important exercise,” added Chebukati.
