On October 11, the High Court of Kenya ruled that in the re-run of the presidential election set for October 26, all candidates who were on the original presidential ballot must be included on that ballot. The electoral commission had been planning to only let the top two candidates into the new election. See this story. The case was brought and won by Ekuru Aukot, who had come in fifth in the original election, out of eight candidates. The High Court had earlier ruled that the first election was invalid due to unfair and illegal violations of the election law, and had said the election must be run again. The first election had been held on August 8.
