Eukuru Aukot and two others locked out of Presidential race

The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission Returning Officer for the Presidential election Wafula Chebukati on Sunday 5th June rejected the application by Thirdway Alliance Kenya Party Presidential Candidate Dr. Ekuru Aukot.

Dr. Aukot who was a presidential candidate in the 2013 elections was rejected after he failed to provide ID copies of his supporters.

Dr Aukot also failed to meet the minimum number of signatures from his supporters, which is required for registration as a Presidential candidate.

The Commission also rejected the application for registration by Independent Presidential aspirants George Munyottah and Peter Kingori as Presidential candidates for not meeting the minimum number of supporters’ IDs and signatures.

As a result of this only five candidates have been successfully registered to run for President in the upcoming elections. These are Raila Odinga of (Azimio Coalition), Walter Mongare (Umoja Summit Party), Prof. George Wajackoyah (Roots Party), David Mwaure Waihiga (Agano Party), William Ruto (United Democratic Alliance).
