Deputy President William Ruto has called on the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to announce the date of a fresh election, saying that Jubilee Party is ready for a repeat poll.
Speaking during a a meet the people tour in Nairobi with President Uhuru Kenyatta hours after the Supreme Court nullified the August 8th general election, Ruto said that Jubilee is not afraid of a repeat poll and exuded confidence that Uhuru will defeat Raila.
He said that Jubilee will win with even a bigger margin that the 1.4 million votes in the nullified poll.
“On 8th August we defeated our competitors, Kenyans voted for a majority of Jubilee candidates in the position of governors, senators, women representatives and members of county assembly.
“We are now telling the IEBC to put up a new timetable for election and we will again win with majority, this time round not with 54 per cent but with over 70 per cent,” he said.
President Kenyatta and his deputy addressed supporters at Burma Market, Jua Kali and Muthurwa areas in Nairobi.
Governors Mike Sonko (Nairobi), Samuel Tunai (Narok) Moses Lenolkulal (Samburu), MP Aden Duale (Garissa Town) and Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen accompanied the two leaders.
They urged Kenyans to come out once again and express their democratic right like they did three weeks ago.
