The Supreme Court has today published the petition by the Coalition for Reform and Democracy (Cord) challenging the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman's announcement of Uhuru Kenyatta as the winner of the March 4 election.
Cord on Saturday submitted the petition with the court raising questions on the credibility of the presidential outcome. The coalition through evidence collected aims to show that the Jubilee alliance's presidential candidate Uhuru Kenyatta did not attain the 50 plus one per cent required by the constitution for a winner in the presidential race.
Cord additionally hopes to show that the failure of the IEBC's electronic voter identification devices, electronic vote tallying, and electronic tally transmission led to anomalies in the electioneering process.
The Jubilee alliance is scheduled to post a response to the Cord petition tomorrow as the parties involved prepare for the hearing which will be preceded by a status conference on March 26.
Both the Cord coalition and the Jubilee alliance have stated that they will abide by the rule of law and will respect the verdict of the Supreme Court.
