The Supreme Court had invalidated the results of the 8 August poll that declared incumbent Kenyatta as the winner, after Odinga claimed the results were electronically tampered with.

The re-run was held on 26 October.

At least 37 people were killed and hundreds injured in clashes during the August election.
