Why Azimio want supreme court to dismiss Moses kuria’s petition on presidential election!

Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition has asked the supreme court to strike out petition file by former Gatundu south member of parliament Moses Kuria in regard to the august 9th presidential election.

Raila Odinga- led coalition argued that the supreme court lacked  jurisdiction to hear the petition by Moses Kuria.

“Jurisdiction of the Supreme court in a Presidential Election is confined to determination of the dispute on the validity of a Presidential Election,” reads court papers.

This is after Moses Kuria filed a petition seeking the dismissal of the election petition filed by Raila Odinga challenging the declaration of William Ruto as president-election on Monday 19th august 2022.

In his petition, Moses Kuria pointed out that Odinga and his party caused violence and the court should not entertain them or granted the orders they seeking.

However, according to Azimio, Kuria’s petition does not challenge the validity of the presidential elections and it should be struck off.

“The petitioner’s reliefs/prayers do not seek to invalidate the outcome of a Presidential Election.  Thus, the Supreme Court cannot determine the Petition and grant the nature of reliefs sought by the Petitioner,” adds Azimio. More
