Time ticking for Chebukati to beat 7-day vote count

“Within seven (7) days after the presidential election, the chairperson of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission shall; (a) declare the result of the election; and (b) deliver a written notification of the result to the Chief Justice and the incumbent president,” reads Article 138(10) of the Constitution.

Time is ticking for the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to declare who won the Presidency in the August 9th polls.

IEBC is required by law to declare results latest Tuesday which will be within the 7-day constitutional timeline.

IEBC has so far verified Presidential results from at least 263 constituencies.

Kenyans have been anxious to find out who will be their 5th President, with calls for peace to be maintained across the country during this period.

The results are based on Forms 34B obtained from the 290 constituencies across the country.

The winning candidate will have to garner the constitutional 50% + 1 and gets more than 24% of votes in at least 24 counties.
