Commission says it is closely monitoring the political situation in Kenya including the decision by NASA leader Raila Odinga to withdraw from the fresh presidential election.

The IEBC added: "Once the commission receives the requisite Notice from any of the candidates, it will process the same in accordance with the requisite provision of the law".

The results of of those elections were overturned by the Supreme Court, after a lawsuit by the main opponent to President Uhuru Kenyatta, based on fraudulent manipulation when posting the vote-count results on the Web.

Speaking Wednesday at the White House, Trump told reporters, "You're going to see very soon". "We will be announcing that very shortly".

IEBC maintained that the repeat election would go on as planned even as the opposition insists a new presidential election must be conducted within 90 days preceded by fresh party nominations.

According to Magaya, the requirement for one to sign Form 24A does not apply in the context of the election at hand.

In Nairobi on Wednesday, Odinga said election officials stalled on actions, "creating an illusion of motion without movement".

The Supreme Court last month rejected the August election in which Mr Kenyatta was declared the victor after Mr Odinga challenged the results, saying hackers infiltrated the electoral commission's computer system to manipulate the vote in Mr Kenyatta's favour. Protestors clashed with police across the country.

However, the Supreme Court has previously ruled that only the petitioner and respondent in the case challenging the election outcome should stand in a rerun, and this decision is likely to stand.

The court elevated Aukot, who ran in the August election, to the level of major candidate in the October vote to preserve the constitutional mandate of an election.
