All eight Kenyan candidates invited to take part in the fresh poll

All eight Kenyan candidates invited to take part in the fresh poll

The NASA leader will discuss the Supreme Court ruling that nullified the August 8 the presidential election and the reforms the Opposition would like to see ahead of the October 26 election.

The opposition says the changes to the law are meant to make the transmission of election results a manual process that would have fewer safeguards against fraud, and would make it more hard for the court to annul an election.

His supporters are unhappy at a new election law and fear it could lead to a walkover victory for incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta, in the re-run of the election later this month.

The amendment was heavily criticised by the opposition, whose legislators boycotted the vote after its leader Raila Odinga on Tuesday, withdrew from a repeat presidential vote scheduled for October 26, citing concerns over fairness and transparency.

The Kenyan election board should include Ekuru Aukot, who polled less than 1 percent in presidential elections in August, on the ballot in the event of a re-run, the High Court ruled on Wednesday.

British jihadi 'White Widow' killed by United States drone: Sun report
The pair, known as Mr and Mrs Terror, were previously part of a hacking collective in the United Kingdom known as "TeaMp0isoN". Like Jones, Hussain was also killed in a drone strike in 2015, after serving as leader of ISIS' hacking arm.

"Six tough options after Raila pull out", reported the Standard newspaper which pointed out that Odinga's surprise move and demands for fresh race in 90 days deepens country's political crisis even as Jubilee insists that October 26 poll will go on as planned.

Odinga said the vote can't be free and fair because of the country's current circumstances.

Lawyers in Uganda and Kenya say Odinga's withdrawal from the rerun had caused constitutional uncertainty because the country's constitution is silent about what happens once a candidate in the rerun withdraws from the race.

That judgement stated that if a candidate dies or withdraws from the fresh election, the IEBC must begin presidential nominations from scratch.
