Kenya Election: Poll Body Delays Re-Run By 9 Days
Local Editor

Kenya's new presidential election were delayed to October 26th, after the country's polls commission sought more time to reform voting processes.

The re-run had originally been scheduled for 17 October.

The move came as Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta accused the country's Supreme Court, which annulled the first vote, of staging a "coup" against the people.

Meanwhile, observers fear Kenya's political temperature is rising, reviving fears political violence may re-erupt.

In Kenya's history, around 1,200 people died in clashes after a disputed 2007 presidential vote.

"A coup in Kenya has just been done by the four people in the Supreme Court," Kenyatta said during a televised meeting with supporters.

The election board said last month that Kenyatta had won 54% of the vote on 8 August, against opposition leader Raila Odinga's 44%.

But Odinga went to court insisting he had been cheated of victory.

The Supreme Court judges concluded that the poll was "neither transparent nor verifiable", and took the unprecedented step of annulling it on 1 September.

The judges released their full comments on Wednesday, and lambasted the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission [IEBC] for mishandling the election.

In response, the polling body said it needed more days to fix the issues that got the first vote annulled - and imposed a nine-day delay.
