‘Null and void’, Odinga rejects results of Kenya’s presidential election

Raila Odinga has rejected the results of Kenya’s presidential election saying that the figures announced on Monday were “null and void”.

According to the results, Mr Odinga narrowly lost to Deputy President William Ruto.

Mr Odinga accused the head of the electoral body of a “blatant disregard of the constitution”.

“We totally without reservation reject the presidential election results,” he said.

Raila Odinga continues: “The figures announced by Mr Chebukati are null and void, and must be quashed by a court of law.”

He also says: “Unless a unanimous decision is reached on any matter, the commission will be made by a majority of the members present”, he says quoting from legislation, suggesting that the four out of seven dissenting electoral commissioners should have had their objections upheld.
