In Kenya, Vice-President William Ruto won the presidential elections held in the country. As transmits TASS with reference to the Agence France-Presse, this was announced by the Independent Electoral Commission of Kenya.

The election commission reported that Ruto scored 50.49% and won in the first round. Its main competitor, former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, received 48.85%.

It is noted that four out of seven members of the electoral committee refused to sign the final documents. “Due to lack of transparency, we cannot take responsibility for the results that will be announced,” Deputy Electoral Commission Chief Julian Cereru said at an emergency press conference.

In turn, the head of the election commission noted that those dissatisfied with the current result can go to court to challenge them.
