Isaac Aluochier filed the case on February 15 at the Supreme Court just as the High Court dismissed the integrity case against Jubilee presidential candidate Uhuru Kenyatta and his running mate William Ruto. The five-judge bench said that matters of elections to the office of the president, the Supreme Court has original and exclusive jurisdiction.
Aluochier argues that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) should not have accepted the nomination of six presidential aspirants; Prime Minister Raila Odinga, Deputy Prime MInister Uhuru Kenyatta, Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka, former Eldoret
North Member of Parliament William Ruto and Former Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth. He says it is unconstitutional for the six to vie for the presidency as they were still state officials when their parties nominated them as flag bearers.
Aluochier is suing the IEBC as well as the IEBC tribunal. In addition he is also suing Uhuru's TNA party, Raila Odinga's ODM,Peter Kenneth's KNC and Musalia Mudavadi's UDF.
