EU Does Not Validate Kenyan Opposition’s Self-Proclaimed Electoral Victory

BRUSSELS – The European Union sent on Friday a message of support to the Kenyan Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, which is expected to soon publish the final results of the general election and did not grant validity to the opposition’s self-declared victory.

The opposition National Super Alliance (NASA) had said Thursday that an anonymous member of the Commission had revealed that it had manipulated the results to give a 700,000-vote advantage to the current head of state, Uhuru Kenyatta.

The EU External Action Service released a statement calling the IEBC fundamental and describing it as “the only institution that can officially announce results.”

The IEBC announced that it would make the results of Tuesday’s general election public at noon on Friday.

Kenyans were awaiting the results impatiently, with thousands of people taking to the streets on Thursday to show their support for the opposition coalition, which demanded that the IECB declare it to be the winner.

The EU observer mission in the electoral process announced Thursday that the voting and counting process was evaluated as well-organized and transparent and that there were no signs of centralized or localized manipulation.

“As expressed by the African Union, we expect now a sense of responsibility and leadership by all parties, by upholding the procedures and institutions as set out by the Constitution of Kenya,” said the EEAS, calling for allegations of fraud to be investigated by constitutional channels.
