So which possible scenarios we dey expect from now?

A clear winner

Di first case in point na a clear winner inside uncontested election – dis candidate (di winner), wey go dey announced, must get more dan half of di total votes cast.

And at least 25% of di votes cast into 24 out of di 47 counties. Inside dis scenario di results no dey contestable.

Di oda candidate accept di declared results and di winner dey sworn-in on di first Tuesday – two weeks after di official results don dey announced.

Winner dey declared but di results dey contested

Anoda scenario go be a winner dey declared but di results dey contested inside court.

Dis na wia within seven days after di winner dey announced by di IEBC someone file a petition for di Supreme Court.

Di Supreme Court must den make a formal judgement on di petition afta 21 days of di petition as dem don file am.

Di court go either uphold di victory or cancel am and order say fresh elections go hold in 60 days of di ruling.

IEBC declare di winner president-elect while di runner up claim victory

For dis possible outcome, di electoral body declare di winner president-elect while di runner up claim victory but den no gree to go to court.

For dis example di president-elect go dey sworn in and e ft become complicated after wetin resemble dis kain tin renew di events in 2007.

Dat na wen political and ethnic tensions caused di post election violence, dat time.

No clear winner leading to or run off

Anoda possibility go be no clear winner leading to or run off.

So inside dis case no candidate get more than half of di cast votes and at least 25% of di 24 of di 47 counties.

So dis go lead to a run off between di two leading candidates wey go hold 30 days after di initial elections.

How dem dey count di results

Wen e come to di electoral commission, on top of compiling di results, officials need to verify each one – anoda time consuming task.

Officials dey currently compare di results wey di commission receive in di form of foto from di polling stations wit di actual results sheet, wey dem dey hand over to di collation centre for di capital, Nairobi.
