Former Devolution ministry administrator Hassan Noor Hassan has moved to court to challenge the election of Mandera North governor Ali Ibrahim Roba.
In the petition filed this afternoon at milimani High Court, Hassan claims that the elections were marred with massive electoral malpractices and irregularities that substantially affected the outcome of the gubernatorial elections in specific polling stations.
Hassan further claims that the irregularities in Ashabito Ward , Guticha Ward ,Morothile Ward , parts of Rhamu Ward and Rhamu-Dimtu Ward led to him being rigged out in favor of Roba.
He adds that the petition raises several discrepancies in figures entered in Form 34A and 34B.
Hassan wants the court to order IEBC preserve and keep all the Kenya Integrated Electoral Systems Kits (KIEMS)used for all the polling stations and tallying Centers with respect to the gubernatorial election for Mandera County held on 8th August 2017 within Mandera North Constituency for purposes of preservation of material evidence .
Similarly he wants all the ballot papers used during the elections kept well.
The petitioner wants IEBC ordered to provide all the election materials including ballot papers.
Noor wants read only access to information relating to the number of servers limited for Mandera North Constituency among other items.
