The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has announced the release of the first validated constituency presidential results out of the 290 that are likely to be confirmed before the winner is announced.
The results from Webuye East were the first ones to be validated at the national tallying center, which was located in the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi, according to Chairman Wafula Chebukati.
Raila Odinga, the presidential candidate for the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition, received 13, 720 votes, while William Ruto, the presidential candidate for the UDA, received 16, 412 votes.
George Wajackoyah, candidate for the Roots party, received 249 votes, while David Waihiga, candidate for the Agano party, received 110 votes.
According to Chebukati, there were 48,950 people who had already registered to vote in the constituency. There were a total of 30,491 votes cast, with 384 invalidated.
The panel must now examine the results of the remaining 289 constituencies before proclaiming the winner of the presidential election. The IEBC will also verify votes cast from outside the country.
