Ong’anya Ombo Advocates LLP provides dedicated electoral law services, including developing strategies from point A – Z concerning the electoral process (including dispute resolution). It is essential to note that electoral law is a substantive-based law that requires adherence to procedures to the letter and spirit of the law. We have previously represented New Democrats, a political party registered in Kenya as per the Political Parties Act.
One of our partners has previously been actively involved in electoral laws on the first presidential election petition of the year 2017, a dispute concerning constitutional rights of diaspora voters, gubernatorial disputes, among others where the Senior Partner handling the matters was representing Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).
Our strategic approach under this category involves mapping out the known or consistent disputes establishing the various strategies to tackle any possible disputes. Our team is always analyzing the electoral law and judicial precedence development to ensure that we are always ready to defend interests that require representation before an internal disciplinary body, tribunal, appellate organ, subordinate or superior courts.
