    Maraga made the announcement after the court finalized hearing the two presidential election petitions filed by former Kilome MP Harun Mwau and activists Njonjo Mue and Khelef Khalifa.

    Mwau’s petition which listed IEBC, Chairman Wafula Chebukati and President Kenyatta stated that IEBC’s failure to allow parties to conduct fresh primaries before the repeat polls denied those who wanted to contest the election an opportunity to do so.

    The former MP also attached a ruling declaring United Democratic Party presidential candidate Cyrus Jirongo bankrupt hence arguing he was unqualified to run for the Presidency.

    Mue and Khalifa’s petition stated that IEBC flouted constitutional provisions in the fresh poll by gazetting strangers on the ballot paper and including National Super Alliance (NASA) candidate Raila Odinga in the presidential race despite his withdrawal.
