The commission has also announced there would be seven verification desks at the National Tallying Centre at Bomas.

All the respective agents would be issued with a folder containing all Form 34 As  from each respective constituency for the purpose of verification and retention for party use.

Kenyans will have to wait longer for an official tally of the results as all the forms have to be brought to the National Tallying Centre at the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi.
