Mr Odinga on Tuesday said he would not accept the date because the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) failed to consult him and other stakeholder as stipulated in law.

The date, he claimed, was set by the Jubilee Party and not IEBC.

 He also demanded legal and constitutional guarantees from IEBC that the repeat poll will be free and fair before the commission carries on with its preparations.
