The once fierce critic blogger of the Jubilee administration took to his social media pages to announce that postponement of the October 26th election is a possibility.

“Election will be postponed,” Alai said without giving indepth details.

As we all know,Regulation 64 of the Elections (General) Regulations 2012 gives Chebukati, as the Chairman of the IEBC and the Returning Officer of the presidential elections, the power to adjourn a presidential elections.

The power to adjourn can be exercised when a presidential elections are clouded by legal uncertainty,likely to be interrupted by riot, violence, shortage of equipment or other materials, and administrative difficulties.

Opposition leader Raila Odinga declared to be no election on October 26th.A declaration that has so far been adhered to by Governors in NASA strongholds who have since warned the IEBC against conducting the upcoming election in their regions.
What these implies is that there are likely to be running battles and violent protest in NASA strongholds on October 26th.The exercise won’t be smooth.
Whether Chebukati will choose to postpone the election on grounds of a looming showdown or proceed with the exercise, is to be seen in the coming days.
