BREAKING NEWS: Opposition leader Raila Odinga pulls out of presidential race

Kenya’s opposition leader Raila Odinga has told an ongoing press briefing that he is pulling out of the 26 October presidential election re-run.

Mr. Odinga says his withdrawal from the race will give the electoral commission enough time to undertake reforms that will help deliver a more credible election. The Supreme Court annulled the 8 August election citing irregularities and illegalities.

The opposition coalition Nasa has been pushing for several changes to be made on the electoral system before the re-run.
