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.

The repeat election between incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga was scheduled for October 26, after the original ballot - in which Kenyatta was declared the victor - was annulled due to procedural irregularities.

Dr Kaluyu, on the other hand, is a US-based scholar who argued that he was bringing the "global outlook" to the Kenyan politics.

IEBC gazetted the two candidates based on the 2013 election petition judgement, which said that the repeat poll will be between the petitioner and the president-elect.

"We've liked what Kevin has been able to do within our offense when he's been in there", Hue Jackson said in a team statement. He completed five of 11 passes for 118 yards and a touchdown against the Ravens while Kizer recovered from a migraine.

Justice John Mativo ruled that IEBC amends its gazette notice on the list of presidential candidates' contesting the repeat polls by adding Mr Aukot to the list. "The simple meaning of the Supreme Court decision is that there was no election and anyone who participated on August 8 presidential election has a right to vie", he said.

Judge says he sees no reason why Aukot should not be included in the repeat presidential election.
