The IEBC has rearranged the auditorium for the coming ceremonies relating to announcement of the winner
According to Citizen TV’s Francis Gachuri who is at the National Tallying Centre at Bomas of Kenya, the commissioners are only waiting to announce the results in the remaining constituencies.
“It is almost a done deal. 259 constituency results so far verified, validated and declared, what remains is about 32 constituencies,” he said, adding that there is a high likely hood that the president-elect could be announced on Monday.
He also said that the busy operations at the verification desks witnessed in the last six days were coming to a close at Bomas of Kenya and the environment was calmer.
“Those 32 constituency results have already been verified and validated, all that we are waiting for is the commissioners to come and declare those results publicly and tell Kenyans how those constituencies voted,” Gachuri explained.
IEBC Chair Wafula Chebukati is also in the process of completing Form 34C which tabulates the results of the presidential candidates.
After the announcement of the results, Chebukati will then hand over Form 34D to the president-elect as a certificate showing their victory.
