Kenyan court denies prime minister 2 requests


NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Kenya's Supreme Court has denied two requests by the legal team of Prime Minister Raila Odinga, who has asked the court to order a new presidential election.

The court this week hears arguments from Odinga's team and civil society groups on why the March 4 election should be re-run. Odinga's team cites multiple failures, including an electronic voter ID system that didn't work and an early vote return system that crashed.

Uhuru Kenyatta was declared the winner of the March 4 election with 50.07 percent of the vote.

The court Tuesday denied a request by Odinga's team for access to computer data held by the election commission. The court also disallowed a more than 800-page affidavit.

The constitution says the court must rule on the case by Saturday.
