Speaking to the Nation on Monday, Kaluyu's running mate Kariara said that, they were opposed to being locked out of the fresh poll ordered by the Supreme Court, although they did not move to court to challenge it.

He ordered IEBC to issue a fresh gazette notice including Dr Aukot.

In his objection, Aukot cited Supreme Court orders when it nullified the presidential election held in August, on September 1 and later in its detailed judgment on September 20, in which the court directed IEBC to conduct a fresh presidential election within sixty days in line with the provisions of Article 140 (3) of the Constitution.
