The Kenyan parliament has passed a controversial amendment to the country’s election laws which has triggered protest in the state capital.
The parliament ruled that if one candidate withdraws from a repeat presidential vote the other candidate would win automatically.
The politician renewed calls for a new electoral board to replace the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
The court ruled in favour of Mr Aukot, who said he had doubts about standing while opposition activists gathered to rally for electoral reform.
During the hearing, Justice John Mativo said he could “find nothing to bar the petitioner (Aukot) from contesting the fresh election”.
