The Supreme Court had nullified Kolosh’s win over errors during the past election. The court ordered IEBC to conduct a fresh poll. The move saw Kolosh shifting from ODM to Jubilee.
The candidates include Ali Noor Abdi (LPK), Ibrahim Mohamud (KANU), Mohamed Yussuf (ODM), Ahmed Kolosh (Jubilee) and Abbas Nunow (AGANO).
