The ruling on the petitions is keenly awaited by both the ruling Jubilee Party and the opposition, as they were brought to court after a repeat election that followed the historic annulment by the same court of the August 8 election in which President Kenyatta had been declared winner.
Ruling could uphold President Kenyatta's win or send Kenya back to poll.
The Supreme Court judges led by Chief Justice David Maraga retreated to an undisclosed place to draft their ruling to be delivered on November 20.
