Kenya Elections 2022- Who is new president of Kenya 2022?

Kenya conducted general elections on August 9, 2022. Kenya’s county governors, National Assembly, Senate, and members of the 47 county legislatures were all chosen by the electorate.

Every five years, there are general elections in Kenya. Since the 2010 constitution’s adoption, there have been three general elections and four presidential ones. According to the nation’s statutes, neither the current president, Uhuru Kenyatta, nor two-term county governors were qualified for a third term. Since the multi-party system was put in place in 1992, the number of presidential candidates that won the general election in 2022 was the lowest.

All parliamentarians elected will sit in the 13th Parliament of Kenya.
