The tallying of provisional presidential results is still ongoing, with numbers changing on a regular basis. Forms 34A, 34B, and 34C will serve as a reference point for the country as it waits to see who will be the next President.
Forms 34A are currently the main references used to tally the provisional presidential results. Article 138 of the constitution states that the IEBC has seven days to tally all of the results and declare the outcome of the Presidential election.
A presiding officer completes Form 34A after counting votes. It displays the votes each presidential candidate received at each station, as well as the rejected, protested, disputed, and valid votes. Before the form is uploaded to the IEBC portal, where it is accessible to third parties such as the media, each candidate’s agent must sign and certify that the information on the form is accurate.
Form 34B, on the other hand, is used to compile presidential election results from constituencies. The forms are then submitted to the National Tallying Centre, where they are verified and used by the IEBC to create Form 34C.
The IEBC Chairman, Wafula Chebukati, will use Form 34C to announce the final results of the presidential election.
According to the most recent provisional presidential results shared by Nation Africa at 6:08 PM, UDA’s Deputy President William Ruto has 3,063,584 votes, or 52.54 percent of the total votes tallied using Form 34A.
Raila Odinga of Azimio, on the other hand, has 2,730,447 votes, or 46.82 percent of the total votes cast. According to preliminary results, George Wajackoyah has 24,428 votes (0.42 percent), while David Waihiga has 12,987 votes (0.22 percent ).
