NASA principal Moses Wetangula has said that the coalition will accept defeat if it concludes the process was free, fair and meets international standards.
Speaking at Michele Primary School polling station in Kabuchai constituency on Tuesday after casting his vote, Wetangula, who is seeking re-election as Bungoma senator, said if the coalition determines that the process was not free and fair, they will seek legal redress.
"We shall only accept the defeat if the election meets international standards. "We shall not accept to be rigged out...we will seek legal redress to see that justice is done,” said Wetangula.
President Uhuru Kenyatta also reiterated that he will accept the will of the people and will concede defeat, and hoped his opponents would do the same. "In the event that they lose, let us accept the will of the people. I am willing myself to accept the will of the people, so let them too," said President Uhuru.
He was speaking after casting his vote at the Mutomo Primary School in his Gatundu South home constituency.
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has said that polling stations will close at 5pm, but that everyone already in line before 5pm will be allowed to vote.
