Kenya has decided. On March 4, 2013, Kenyans went to the polls in what is now being looked at as the first elections on the African continent and since then, the voting plus vote tallying has been peaceful all through. The third candidate Mudavadi Musalia conceded defeat on Friday morning and the fourth candidate Kenneth Peter rejected the results.
For now the poll is tight between TNA' s Kenyatta Uhuru who has 6,035,582 (49.72%) and Raila Odinga of ODM with 5,285,771(43.54%) votes which seems like tending to a run off. The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) was forced to postpone the last batch of vote tallying to Saturday morning.
The IEBC is going to discuss the issue of 50% plus one vote and also look at the last batch of votes together with the party represenatives before they announce the winner for the Kenya 2013 Elections. The IEBC confirmed this in their latest tweet: "Final announcement of results tomorrow, Sat 9th, 11am. Thank you for being with us through the tedious journey."
The results for the other candidates were as follows:
Total votes cast: 12,139,379, Rejected votes 107,595, Valid Votes 12,025,072 from 285/291 constituencies. Kenya will have a President by Saturday 09-Mar-2013 at 11:00am.
