Kenya Sets New Presidential Election Date

Posted on in Uncategorized title_rule

Last month, Kenya’s election board announced that the country’s presidential re-run has been rescheduled for 26 October, after initially stating that it would be held on 17 October.

While the election board had initially disclosed that the re-run would take place on 17 October, a French firm whose technology is being used for the polls announced earlier this month that it would not be ready in time for that date.

The announcement came a day after a detailed Supreme Court judgement laid out the reasons why the court had nullified last month’s election.
