Delegation of the European Union to Kenya

Joint Statement by Heads of Mission in Kenya

The Supreme Court’s decision today on the 2017 presidential election is an important moment for Kenya.  The Court’s independent review has demonstrated Kenya’s resilient democracy and commitment to the rule of law.  The Kenyan people showed patience and confidence as the legal case ran its course.    

Kenya’s electoral institutions now must begin preparing for a new presidential poll later this year and we urge everyone to work to make it free, fair, credible, and peaceful.  We have trust in the ability of Kenya and its citizens to do so.  All electoral processes can be improved, and we will continue to support Kenya’s institutions in this important work.  The transparent legal process and the parties’ respect for the Court’s decision reflect the strength of Kenya’s democracy.

As friends, we want to deepen our partnership with Kenya as it moves forward in building this great country.  At this historic time, we stand with all Kenyans as they support and reaffirm their democracy, which is an example for Africa and the world.
