Kenya Supreme Court annuls result of presidential polls, ordered for re-election
In a ruling issued on Friday, the court said the electoral board committed “irregularities and illegalities” during last month’s vote, harming the integrity of the election.
“The declaration [of Kenyatta’s win] is invalid, null and void,” said Judge David Maranga, announcing the verdict of four out of the six judges.
The protest was brought before the Supreme Court by opposition leader Raila Odinga, who lost to Kenyatta.
Kenyatta was announced the winner with 54 percent of the vote – but Odinga claimed the election was rigged.
