President elect Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto have both filed responses to a petition by the Cord coalition challenging the outcome of the March 4 general elections.
In his response, the President elect has said the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission conduct a free and fair poll stating that he beat Cord's presidential candidate Raila Odinga fairly.
He said the difference of more than 800,000 votes between himself and the runner's up Raila in the Presidential poll is "wholly significant" and clearly demonstrates the will of the Kenyan people.
He added that numerous observers gave the process a clean bill of health stating that petitioners have "exaggerated facts and peddled outright falsehood" to invalidate the elections.
Ruto in his petition has also stated that the IEBC conducted a transparent election and the results reflected the will of the people.
He said Cord's allegations are devoid of any proof and are a result of the petitioner's "bitterness" arising from the loss. He stated that the petition has no legal basis.
The Cord coalition has filed a petition challenging the election of Jubilee alliance's Uhuru Kenyatta as the president of Kenya. IEBC chair Isaack Hassan who declared the result on March 9 filed his response to the petition earlier this morning. Hassan said Cord has failed to provide enough evidence to make the Supreme Court invalidate the result of the elections.
