Kenya parliament passes controversial election law amendment

NAIROBI – The Kenyan parliament passed an amendment on Wednesday to the country’s election laws, saying that if one candidate withdraws from a repeat presidential election, the other one would automatically win.

The amendment was heavily criticised by the opposition, whose legislators boycotted the vote.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga withdrew from a repeat presidential vote scheduled for 26 October on Tuesday, citing concerns over fairness and transparency. The law must now be signed by the president.
