IEBC On Aukots Ruling and Raila Withdrawal -All Candidates to be in Ballot , Raila yet to Officially Withdraw (Form 24A)

Unread post by nowayhaha » Wed Oct 11, 2017 11:31 am

PRESS STATEMENT ON THE FORTHCOMING FRESH PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
Nairobi: October 11th, 2017


The Commission has deliberated on the judgment delivered by Justice Mativo in the Ekuru Aukot petition delivered today at the High Court.
In light of the judgment, it is the Commission’s position that the relevant law applicable for holding the fresh presidential election is Article 140(3) of the Constitution. It is pursuant to this provision that the Supreme Court on 1st September 2017 nullified the results of the Presidential Election conducted on 8th August 2017. The Supreme Court ordered that a fresh Presidential election be held within a period of 60 days from the 1st of September 2017. 

Who will be the candidates for the purposes of the fresh Presidential election? 

In the Judgment delivered by the Honorable Mr. Justice Mativo in Ekuru Aukot VS. The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission and Others HC Petition No.471 /2017 on 11th October 2017, the Court found that all candidates who participated as candidates in the General Election held on the 8th August 2017 were entitled to participate as candidates in the fresh Presidential Election. 

It is therefore the Commission’s position that the candidates for the fresh presidential election scheduled for 26th October 2017 shall include all the eight (8) candidates who participated in the 8th August 2017 Presidential Election.

How will the Commission give Notice of inclusion of the other candidates?

The Commission had already gazetted the following candidates, namely; His Excellency Uhuru Kenyatta with his running mate His Excellency William Ruto; and the Rt. Honourable Raila Odinga and his running mate Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka. This is contained in a Gazette Notice dated 5th September 2017. 

In the Judgment delivered today, the Court directed that the name of Ekuru Aukot can be included by way of corrigenda. However, since all candidates who participated in the last election were entitled to run in the fresh presidential election, the Commission will comply with the direction to include the names of the other candidates by way of corrigenda.


What will happen if any of the eligible candidates gives Notice of intention not to participate in the forthcoming Fresh Presidential Election?

The Commission cannot compel a candidate to participate in an election. The law allows a candidate to withdraw his/her candidature by delivering to the Commission a duly filled Form 24A. This Form is provided for by the Elections (General) Regulations.

We note that the Rt. Honorable Raila Odinga and his running mate sent a letter dated 10th October 2017 indicating that they had decided to withdraw from the fresh Presidential Election. They however have not submitted the statutory Form 24A. Once the Commission receives the requisite Notice from any of the candidates, it will process the same in accordance with the requisite provision of the Law.

The Commission appreciates the anxiety across the country following the numerous legal interpretations in this matter. We appeal for calm and dialogue among all players to ensure that elections are successfully held and for the country to move forward.

INDEPENDENT ELECTORAL AND BOUNDARIES COMMISSION

To make it worse for NASA, the new election laws will be assented to by Uhuru tomorrow, and barring any court mischief, thin time line to October 26 means the election will be 90% manual as per new laws :D

He has been cornered this time around. the only worry was about gazettment of new presidential candidates which would have required 21 days before the election . Atleast the judge was clear that an amendment wil suffice in this case

Secondly it was about reconfiguring KIEMs and it seems IEBC has no issue with this. We have an election on 26th October and Raila is still in the race

The next challenge we need to tackle is the plan by Railan to cause mayhem on 26th October

According to prof. Nguny, Raila is counting on technality they will create so that it becomes impossible to hold elections on Oct 26, so the dateline will be go beyond the 60 days. This will make the courts give another date, 90 days. That is when jaCON will go for nusu mkate. Did you read what Orengo said today on Uhurus term? He said expires on Nov 1st. That is why Raila is fooling us on withdrawal

Ngunyi did not count on today's Aukot ruling. Raila is now isolated and out of options and NASA demonstrations are not catching fire except in Luo Nyanza, so don't be surprised if he starts talking about 'dialogue'.

He has already called for dislogue with Uhuru today

Opposition leader Raila Odinga has said that he is ready to hold dialogue with President Uhuru Kenyatta to discuss the way forward a day after withdrawing from the October 26 fresh presidential election.

Speaking on Radio Jambo on Wednesday morning, the opposition leader however, dismissed speculations that he is aiming for a coalition government between NASA and Jubilee.

“We need to solve our own problems and I am ready to hold talks with anyone so that we can get a solution to the current stalemate,” said the NASA principal.

The NASA leader also condemned the government for withdrawing his security, saying it was a clear indicator that President Kenyatta’s administration does not want the opposition to participate in the repeat poll.

“They didn’t even write a letter to notify me when they would be withdrawing my security detail and it was in the middle of the campaign. We even needed more officers,” said Raila.

He added that the campaign funds that NASA raised from Kenyans have already been spent in campaigns.

Raila is set to travel to London on Wednesday evening for a public lecture.

Raira Main plot revolves around mass action during 25-26th to disrupt kura to force nusu mkate. Hii tulionea mbali like i said raira will never do a honorable straight boycott because that will not give him negotiating power. We can read Raira and nasa very well even what they are dreaming at night can you believe itumbi last week accurately predicted date, time and content of raira announcement yesterday .

Uhuru should just ignore him and maintain his stance that only elections will solve the stand off. Talking only gives Raila imaginary clout and leverage he clearly doesn't have.

With Ruto by his side , I dont see Uhuru agreeing to Railas demands

Last bullet Nasa seems to think they can use is the 2004 Ukraine Orange style revolution. However this strategy requires lots of monies and is the eeason perhaps Raila has left for Britain. In ukraine millions of demonstrators were being paid and given food to camp in the streets. Based on Orengos speech yesterday they want to do a replica of thay at Uhury Park(he renamed it Raila Odinga Park). But how will Nasa sneak in the money is the puzzle. The government has denied them source of funds through the devolved funds and freeze all monies remitted from their sponsors abroad. Nasa has been cornered the check mate is 26th October.

Both Uhuru and Ruto would have a lot to lose if they succumbed to 'dialogue' aka 'Nusu Mkate' negotiations. Uhuru would have economic saboteurs in his govt determined to obstruct his transformation agenda and hence taint his legacy, while Ruto would have additional political headache as he prepares to inherit the presidency from Uhuru. There is no way the duo will therefore accept 'dialogue', not unless forced by overwhelming political pressure from NASA, but a power Raila does not have in reality. His options have run out.

People are getting tired with this man. The last thing we want to hear of is nusu mkate. He made that a very bad thing by constantly fighting Kibaki daily. We cant be the only ones who care what happens to the country. If some luos decide they want to burn the country we will face them. Enough is enough. What audacity does a slum rat like Okoths72 aka Itina have to smash a fellow Kenyan's vehicle windscreen just for kicks? Who does Raila think he is?
aliaR Ojinga.........killing Kenyans since 1982.
