Kenya's repeat presidential poll was free and fair, the election commission said on Monday, despite opposition complaints over the vote that led to it boycotting the process.
The worst crisis in Kenya in a decade, has cast a shadow over east Africa's most stable democracy and economic powerhouse. At least 48 people have been killed in election violence in August.
The courts may have agreed with Kenya's opposition that there were problems with the election and ordered a rerun. But this poll may too be scuppered if concerns in a leaked memo are not addressed.
Kenya's election commission has set October 17 as the date for a new presidential poll. Last week the Supreme Court had nullified August 8 polls won by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
President appeals for calm after country's Supreme Court orders election be held again within 60 days, and says Kenyatta's win was fraught with irregularities.
