CORD lead counsel George Oraro has hinted that Supreme Court will overturn the decision by IEBC to declare Uhuru Kenyatta winner of the disputed Â 4th March election.
Oraro confirmed that Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (Cord) has enough evidence to prove its case at the highest Court in the land.
“We (Cord) have a strong case and are sure we are going to overturn IEBC (Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission) move to declare Uhuru Kenyatta as President-elect,” Mr Oraro said Saturday.
Oraro said IEBC had not provided all the information Cord needed but it had “sufficient evidence” to mount a strong case.
Oraro said Prime Minister Raila Odinga is the petitioner in the case while Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), Isaack Hassan(IEBC Chair), President elect Uhuru Kenyatta and deputy president elect William Ruto are the respondents.
Mr Oraro leads a high level team of experience lawyers including senior counsel Mutula Kilonzo, former AG Amos Wako, Pheroze Nowrejee among others to argue its case before the Supreme Court.
H said Cord was dissatisfied with the way vote counting was done and that party agents did not sign Form 36.
Raila accuses IEBC of negligence and failure to conduct free and fair elections in the March 4 elections.
Meanwhile Prime Minister Odinga said his team has enough evidence to challenge IEBC results.
â€œI am not challenging the outcome of the IEBC results because I want to be declared President but rather let the will of the people prevail. We are going to court today. We have enough evidenceâ€, Raila said.
