Kenyan presidential contender William Ruto is only ahead of Raila Odinga, according to preliminary data made public on Sunday.
According to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, Rutto's success rate of 48.09 percent was higher than Dinga's prior triumphs (IEB).
The vote on Tuesday went rather smoothly, but due to previous charges of violence and election fraud, the IEB is under pressure to conduct a fair poll and release the results by Tuesday.
Representatives of political parties intervened, claiming that the election had been manipulated and rigged.
Party leaders allegedly attempted to rig the election on Friday by questioning poll workers about insignificant subjects, according to the chair of the commission, Wfula Hebukati.
Kenyans are furious about the delay, and many of them want any disagreements over the option to be resolved peacefully and legally.
