Kenya’s Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) will announce results from the repeat presidential election at 15:30 (1230 GMT) on Monday, its vice chairwoman Consolata Maina told a news briefing.

According to results displayed at the national tallying center, President Uhuru Kenyatta won 98 percent of the vote with 266 out of 291 constituencies reporting in an election boycotted by the opposition.

Polling stations were unable to open in 25 constituencies due to protests by supporters of opposition leader Raila Odinga.

Mr. Odinga wants new vote to be held within 90 days. He described the country’s repeat presidential election as a sham.
