Will Raila go back to Supreme Court if he loses? Orengo answers
What next for Raila if he loses?
Chief Justice David Maraga directed the Independent Electoral and Boundaries (IEBC) to set a new date for the fresh election, forcing Kenyatta’s team and that of his arch rival Raila Odinga back to the campaign trail to woo voters.
During rallies, Jubilee leaders have attacked Mr. Odinga stating that he does not want an election but rather a coalition Government.
Sentiments President Kenyatta has echoed several times during his addresses.
Following the numerous times, the former Prime Minister has complained about elections being rigged, the question that has lingered on the minds of many is whether Odinga will accept the results if he loses.
Will he go back to the court or concede defeat?
Siaya Senator James Orengo finally answered the critical question of whether NASA will be proceeding to the Supreme Court if the results does not favour the Opposition’s flag bearer.
In a Q and A session with the Nation, the senior counsel divulged that this will not be the case if the IEBC conducts the election in a free and fair manner.
The lawyer noted that NASA will not tolerate injustice and electoral fraud but ready to live with the outcome if conducted in a free and fair way.
“Nasa is preparing for an election that is free and fair. In those circumstances, one can live with the outcome of the fresh presidential election. But Nasa is intolerant to injustice and electoral fraud,” he stated.
