Some 116 politicians have filed petitions challenging outcomes of the August 8 general election.
The number has risen from 22 that was recorded in August 28.
A statement by the Judiciary on Wednesday indicated that 54 cases have been filed at the High Court and 62 at the Magistrate court.
These exclude party list petitions.
Cases filed at the High Court include; 14 governor positions, 33 MPs, four senate seats and three women reps most of which are challenging election of Jubilee members.
The prominent petitions include that of former deputy speaker Hon Farah Maalim who is challenging Jubilee loud mouth Aden Duale in the Garissa Town MP seat contest.
Another is Martha Karua challeging NYS scandal mastermind Ann Waiguru for the Kirinyaga governor seat.
Others include former Embu Senator Lenny Kivuti who filed papers in bulk against Governor Martin Wambora’s victory.
Kivuti lost narrowly to Wambora, garnering 96,775 votes against his 97,760.
His lawyers Tom Ojienda and Wilfred Nyamu, and supporters, accompanied him when he went to file the documents. His petition will be handled at the Embu High Court.
Former Lamu Governor Issa Timamy also filed petition at the Malindi High Court to challenge the election of Fahim Twaha.
He wants a scrutiny and a recount of votes cast in the August 8 election saying the exercise was marred by massive irregularities.
IEBC declared Twaha (Jubilee) winner with 22,969 votes (46.57%) against Timamy’s 22,848 (45.45%).
The Judiciary noted petitions will be determined within six months from the date of filing.
Ward representative petitions will be handled at magistrates’ courts and the rest at High Courts.
“Any persons intending to contest the results of the election is required to file the election petitions within 28 days of the date of declaration,” it said.
