Kenya Election Results: The Facts
Here are the official Kenya election results of the 27 December 2007 polls – both of the presidential and parliamentary elections.
The presidential election results are widely thought to be fraudulent. After 90% of the constituencies having reported their election results, Odinga was leading with 370,000 votes. Two days later, the Election Commission suddenly announced that Kibaki had won with a 200,000 vote difference. Some areas had a voter turnout of 115 percent; the number of votes counted locally and the number that reached Nairobi didn’t add up; some election officials disappeared mysteriously together with their ballot boxes; foreign election observers could not investigate situations; the list goes on.
However, protests by Odinga supporters led to widespread riots and after negotiations the two rivals agreed on a
power sharing deal.

The Parliamentary Elections
Together with the presidential elections, the parliamentary elections were held too. Contrary to the presidential elections, these results are not suspected to be fraudulent. Here, the Odinga’s ODM party has a big lead, which was a further reason to include them in the government coalition. Otherwise, the ODM in parliament could make life really hard for the government.
