What the Election Nullification means for Kenyans

What next? Kenyans wonder.

The NASA presidential candidate called the election a sham and Uhuru’s win a result of ‘computer-generated leadership.’

About a week after Raila Odinga filed the petition challenging the election of President Uhuru Kenyatta, the Supreme Court has determined that the elections were not free and fair and they would be nullified.

So what does this mean for Kenyans?

This now means that Kenyans will go back to the ballot as stipulated under the Constitution of Kenya, 2010.

But this time, Kenyans will vote for only two candidates. Because as the Constitution states, not all the candidates will participate in the ‘fresh election’ as it will be limited to the petitioner (Raila Odinga) and the President-elect (Uhuru Kenyatta).

As Article 140 (3) of the constitution states “If the Supreme Court determines the election of the President-elect to be invalid, a fresh election shall be held within sixty days after the determination.”
