Kenya supreme court dismisses petition challenging the election result

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Kenya Supreme Court dismisses petition challenging the election result” – below is their description.

Kenya’s Supreme Court has upheld William Ruto’s win in last month’s presidential election.

In a unanimous verdict, it threw out all of the allegations of vote rigging put forward by his opponent Raila Odinga.

Odinga said he would respect the ruling, even though he disagreed with it, easing fears of a repeat of the violence that followed disputed votes in 2007 and 2017.

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.
