Kenya’s presidential re-run has been rescheduled for Oct. 26, the election board said on Twitter on Thursday, a day after a detailed Supreme Court judgment laid out the reasons why the court had nullified last month’s poll.

The election board had originally said the re-run would take place on Oct. 17, but a French firm whose technology is being used for the polls said it would not be ready in time for that date.
