Description

Polls have closed in Kenya and vote-counting has begun in a tight election to choose a president and parliament. Voting centres closed at 5pm local time on Tuesday. Results are not expected before Wednesday, and the electoral body has seven days to declare a winner. Some polling stations have remained open after the 5pm deadline in areas where heavy rain and technical issues had hampered voting. Incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta is standing for a second term, but faces a tough challenge from his long-time rival Raila Odinga. To win outright, a candidate needs at least 50% of the vote, and at least 25% in 24 of Kenya's 47 counties. If that threshold is not met, a run-off vote will take place.
