Constitutional Lawyers and Experts Bob Mkangi and Adrian Kamotho have now revealed that the Gurren constitution has cited all the possible scenarios that could force President Kenyatta to stay in office at least upto may next year.
In the event that one of the leading aspirants goes to court to contest the results, the Supreme Court will be required to give its Verdict 14 days after the petition is filed. If satisfied with the petitioner's grounds, the Supreme will order a new Presidential election within 60 days.
The repeat election could also be contested at the Supreme Court in the event that none of the candidates will bypass the 50 plus one margin.
The IEBC will be required to conduct another Election on November 3rd. The results will be announced on November 7th. In case there won't be a clear winner, the Supreme Court will order another run-off to be held on December 28th.
The results will be announced on January 2nd. Petitioners who are unsatisfied with the results can file another petition on January 9th when the Supreme Court will order another runoff election to be held on March 4th. Elections results will be declared on March 28 with unsatisfied individuals allowed to file another Petition on April 4th.
The Supreme Court ruling will be on April 18th. If the Supreme Court is Satisfied with the process, the President-elect will be sworn in on April 25th. The lawyers however argue that the swearing-in date could also be on may 2nd depending on how the constitution will be interpreted. All this time, President Kenyatta will remain in office.
