Top lawyer Steve Ogolla has joined the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission panel defending the 15th August declaration of William Ruto as President Elect.
“Glad to make part of the IEBC Legal Counsel. The gravamen of our case is that polling station results in the physical Forms 34A are final and binding on the Commission and Candidates. These have not been challenged, and we see no reason to disturb the outcome of this election.” posted Ogola on his social media.
Ogolla has been on the record that Article 138(10) of the Constitution provides that the Chairperson of IEBC shall declare the results of the presidential election. ”The law does not demand quorum. Differently put, a walkout by four Commissioners taints but does not invalidate the results,” Ogolla stated.
