Access to Election Count System granted to opposition: Kenya SC


Kenya Supreme Court

Kenya Supreme Court ordered the election commission on 28th August to allow Raila Odinga's National Super Alliance (NASA) and Uhuru Kenyatta's Jubilee Party restricted access to its computer servers and electronic devices to reckon the vote-count for them to verify the election's morality.

Kenyatta won a second five-year term, according to the election commission, which was validated by independent monitors of a sampling of 2,000 polling stations. Odinga's supporters allege that the results from more than one-third of the polling stations are "fatally flawed."

According to the opposition's lawyer, some tally sheets were missing security features and an official stamp, which was designed to insure the election process, was conducted equitably, especially if the electronic systems were to fail. The court must provide a ruling by September 1 and if the opposition succeeds, a new election must be held within 60 days.
