The electoral commission, IEBC, has raised two issues it wants the Supreme Court to address among them whether President Uhuru Kenyatta was validly elected as declared by the IEBC chairman, Wafula Chebukati.

Through lawyer Paul Muite, the commission also wants other reliefs among them cost and nullification of the NASA petition challenging the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

The Opposition coalition NASA, through lawyer Peter Kakuma, on it’s part has raised 28 issues to be determined by the Supreme Court.

Among the issues is whether the presidential results in the IEBC portal reflect the actual results in forms 34A, 34B and 34C.

Whether the results in Forms 34A were accurately copied and tallied in Forms 34B; whether the results were verified and accurately tallied in Forms 34B and 34C; whether all the forms 34A used in the election were similar for every polling station in design, form and format; whether the returns showed results signed by ungazetted Returning Officers; and whether 1st, 2nd and 3rd Respondents or their agents or employees committed any malpractices, misconduct, corrupt actions, irregularity, acts of intimidation and improper influence or other actions or omissions contrary to the Election Laws.

The issues raised by both the petitioner and the respondents are to form the considerations on whether the court will uphold or invalidate the presidential elections outcome.

The court will now have to decide on which issues to determine as raised by NASA, IEBC and President Uhuru Kenyatta in the case.
