Long-term observers gather with colleagues from the core team in Nairobi ahead of the election
Twenty-four EU long-term observers (LTOs) gathered in Nairobi for a briefing from the core team before heading out to different counties across Kenya for observation of the re-run of the presidential election. Most LTOs were in Kenya for observation of the annulled 8 August elections. On election day they will be joined by 40 short-term observers, plus a delegation of Members of the European Parliament and some members of the local diplomatic community, to observe voting, counting, tallying and the results process.
