Drama, disappointment in Nairobi as Ruto wins Kenyan election

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Drama, disappointment in Nairobi as Ruto wins Kenyan election” – below is their description.

There was drama and disagreement across parts of the Kenyan capital after Deputy President Ruto was declared president-elect.

The announcement by the electoral commission was delayed because of scuffles inside the vote counting centre, after four of the seven commission members refused to endorse the result.

Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, who came in second with close to 49% of the votes, made no statements following the results, but a member of his team hinted at ‘electoral offences’.

In This Story: Vote

Voting is a method for a group, such as a meeting or an electorate, in order to make a collective decision or express an opinion usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns. Democracies elect holders of high office by voting. Residents of a place represented by an elected official are called “constituents”, and those constituents who cast a ballot for their chosen candidate are called “voters”. There are different systems for collecting votes, but while many of the systems used in decision-making can also be used as electoral systems, any which cater for proportional representation can only be used in elections.

In smaller organizations, voting can occur in different ways. Formally via ballot to elect others for example within a workplace, to elect members of political associations or to choose roles for others. Informally voting could occur as a spoken agreement or as a verbal gesture like a raised hand or electronically.
