At least six judges of Kenya’s apex court will preside over a status conference where the parties to the presidential election petitions will agree on the rules of engagement to pave the way for hearing and determination of the cases.
At the centre of the petition that has not attracted a reaction by the main opposition party — National Super Alliance (Nasa) — even though its lawyers have been served, is lack of nomination of presidential candidates by political parties given that the October poll was not a rerun.
