Kenya’s electoral commission has announced that the country’s new presidential elections will take place on October 17, after the country’s Supreme Court overturned the result of last month’s poll that declared President Uhuru Kenyatta the winner

“A fresh presidential election will be held on the 17th of October 2017,” said a statement released on Monday signed by Wafula Chebukati, chairperson of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

“This is in conformity with the Supreme Court decision annulling the presidential election held on 8th August 2017.”

Chebukati said only Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga, who brought the court challenge, would be on the ballot along with their running mates.

On Friday, Chief Justice David Maraga cancelled the results of the August poll saying the election commission had failed to hold a legitimate election and that the results were, therefore, “invalid, null and void”.

He added that the IEBC had committed “irregularities and illegalities” in the transmission of results from polling stations to the national tally centre.
