IEBC will not contest ruling on presidential results
IEBC will not contest Court of Appeal ruling on declaration of presidential poll results at constituency level.
The Commission said on Saturday that it will ensure credibility in the August 8 polls.
“The Court of Appeal clarified on declaration of results. We are not appealing the decision.” IEBC posted on Twitter.
In a victory for NASA and setback for Jubilee, the Court of Appeal on Friday affirmed that presidential results announced in constituencies are final.
On announcement of presidential results, the Appellate court held that the IEBC’s returning officers posted in the 290 constituencies must electronically transmit presidential results to the national tallying centre in Nairobi.
But they cannot be altered in Nairobi.
However, only the IEBC chair Wafula Chebukati is mandated to formally announce the results.
