Speaking at the State House, Ruto said that the opposition’s plot to have the IEBC disbanded would not happen under their watch.
He said that the Raila Odinga led camp was not ready for the fresh polls as directed by the Supreme Court and only wanted to strong arm the government into forming a coalition government.
“The Supreme court cannot determine who rules this country, we will have no grand coalition and the election will be conducted by IEBC, we will not have the Opposition playing around with us over disbandment of IEBC,” he said.
“There is no way that Jubilee won majority seats in MCAs, MPs, Senators, Governors and Women representatives then tell us we did not win the Presidential seat, how possible is that?” Ruto posed.
The DP while addressing Jubilee Governors and MCAs maintained that the four Supreme Court judges overturned the will of the Kenya people and that Uhuru Kenyatta was the duly elected President of Kenya.
He said that Kenyatta would in the fresh polls win with over 70%+1 votes.
“We are not going to succumb to pressure from the Courts, we won the election fair and square. The Supreme court has had their day, ours is coming and we will scrutinize everything. We respect the rule of law but we are not stupid. We will have the election is 60 days and they better be prepared,” Ruto stated.
Speaking at the same meeting, President Uhuru Kenyatta said that the Judiciary had a problem that he would look into after the elections were over.
He also said that he would be scrutinizing the SCOK judgement.
”We respect the decision of the court but we will revisit it at a later date. For now let us meet at the ballot.”
Kenyatta on Friday said he respected but did not agree with the court ruling.
