The five judge bench of Asike Makhandia, Kathurima M’Inoti, William Ouko, Patrick Kiage and Agnes Murgor Asike Makhandia, Kathurima M’Inoti, William Ouko, Patrick Kiage and Agnes Murgor ruled that the presidential results at the constituency level are final.

The High Court recently ruled that presidential election results at the constituency level announced by returning officers should be considered final.

The ruling is a major boost for Nasa team led by its flag bearer Raila Odinga who were the major proponents of the tallying to be decalred at the constituency level.

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) had wanted the court to find that the High Court over-stepped in determining the matter, arguing that following the gazettement of the presidential election, any disputes concerning it are rightfully under the purview of the Supreme Court.
