Raila Odinga rejects date for repeat presidential poll

National Super Alliance leader Raila Odinga has rejected the October 17 date set by the electoral commission for the presidential repeat poll.

The date, he claimed, was set by the Jubilee Party and not IEBC.

He also demanded legal and constitutional guarantees from IEBC that the repeat poll will be free and fair before preparations for poll continue.

Speaking at Wilson Airport in Nairobi, Mr Odinga also reiterated his call for staff and system changes at the at the commission.
