Partial recount in presidential vote: Kenya court
Nairobi: Kenya`s Supreme Court has ordered the election commission to recount votes in some constituencies in regard to the country`s March 4 presidential election.
The court today heard arguments from civil society groups and the legal team of Prime Minister Raila Odinga over what they say were failures by the election commission to conduct a free and fair election.
The court ordered the election commission to recount votes in 22 of the country`s 291 constituencies to see if any of the tallies exceed the number of registered voters, one of the complaints from Odinga`s team. The court also ordered scrutiny of the 33,400 forms which were used for to record election results.
The election commission named Uhuru Kenyatta the winner of the election with 50.07 per cent of the vote.
