Kenyan Court Rules On Election Date
Kenya's appeal court judge Martha Koome has said the General Election should be held by January 15, 2013 arguing Parliament’s life should not exceed a five-year cycle.
Justice Koome said the House should be dissolved on November 14, 2012.
She ruled that the High Court misinterpreted the Constitution and the two alternatives given by court were unconstitutional.
The judge declared them null and void. She also said President has no powers to dissolve Parliament.
The ruling follows an appeal by lobby groups who sought a determination on the date of the next General Election.
