    President Uhuru Kenyatta today said he expected elections to be held within the 60-day period set out in the Constitution after the Supreme Court annulled the August 8 polls, and that the electoral agency IEBC would conduct it.

    The President said no one had the right to impose conditions on the IEBC before the repeat elections were held, and that threats by the opposition coalition NASA amounted to bullying, intimidation, and rogue politics, but would amount to nothing.

    President Kenyatta spoke when he received a 8,000-strong member delegation from Narok County, at which former gubernatorial candidate Patrick ole Ntutu and 10 MCAs pledged full support for his re-election campaign.

    “The election must be done within 60 days (of the Supreme Court decision) and two, the election must be conducted by IEBC as required by the Constitution,” President Kenyatta said.
