Updates on Kenya Final Presidential Election Results 2022
According to NTV Kenya, Azimio takes the majority in National Assembly, and Kenya Kwanza takes Senate. In their reports: “Raila Odinga’s Azimio la Umjoa has a majority in the National Assembly with 162 members compared to William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza which has 159 members. None of the coalitions commands an absolute majority of 180 members yet with 12 nominated seats still vacant and 4 elections having been postponed.”
On single-party membership, Ruto’s UDA carries the day in the National Assembly with 137 members with Raila’s ODM coming second at 85. The two are followed by Jubilee with 28 MPs and Wiper with 24. UDA will therefore get a majority of the 12 nominated MP slots.
In the Senate, Kenya Kwanza has the Majority at 24 while Azimio comes in second at 22 Senators with one Senator unaffiliated to any of the two coalitions.
Besides, Kenya Kwanza leads in the Woman Rep count with three undeclared seats. Meanwhile, William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza is leading in the number of seats captured in the just concluded general election with 22 seats. Raila Odinga’s Azimio la Umoja has 19 seats so far while there are three independents. Three seats – Kiambu, Nairobi, and Turkana.
The law requires that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) undertakes verification of the final Presidential election results 2022 and declares the President-elect within seven (7) days after the Presidential Election.
However, the Commission shall endeavor to conclude this exercise at the earliest possible. Therefore calls for patience from Kenyans as it undertakes its mandate.
