Four IEBC commissioners gave their justifications for rejecting the Official Presidential results.

Yesterday, four commissioners led by the Vice Chairperson came out and excluded themselves from the results that the Chairperson was about to announce. Today, August 16, 2022, in a broadcast aired live from Serena Hotel, they came out and addressed the media, explaining why they separated themselves from the Presidential results.

In her remarks, Madam Cherera said the chairperson kept them in the dark about the whole process of generating Form 34C, something that made them question the legitimacy of the final results.

She went ahead and outlined the percentages that each candidate got. Her point of concern was that there cannot be a percentage that exceeds 100% and thus Chebukati's total percentage of what each candidate scored went over 100% by a margin of 0.01, something that propelled them to disregard the final results calculations.

The Vice Chairperson noted that 0.01% of votes is a significant figure that can make a big difference in the overall outcome.

Another point of concern the four commissioners raised was that in the Chairperson's declaration of the Presidential results, he failed to announce very key aspects like the total number of votes cast, the number of rejected and valid votes, and the percentage of the votes cast against the registered number of voters.
