CORD’s lead lawyer George Oraro is confident of a strong case after filing a petition contesting Uhuru Kenyatta’s declaration as the president elect.
Oraro said Prime Minister Raila Odinga is the petitioner in the case while Independent Electoral and Boundaries Comission (IEBC), Isaack Hassan(IEBC Chair), President elect Uhuru Kenyatta and deputy president elect William Ruto are the respondents.
Hassan is the returning officer of the presidential results.
Addressing a press conference on Saturday, the PM said they have enough evidence to challenge IEBC results.
“I am not challenging the outcome of the IEBC results because I want to be declared President but rather let the will of the people prevail. We are going to court today. We have enough evidence”, Raila said.
