NAIROBI - Kenya's presidential re-run has been rescheduled for Oct 26, the election board said on Twitter on Thursday, a day after a detailed Supreme Court judgment laid out the reasons why the court had nullified last month's poll.

The election board had originally said the re-run would take place on Oct 17, but a French firm whose technology is being used for the polls said it would not be ready in time for that date.

Earlier this month, Kenya's Supreme Court nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta's election win, citing irregularities, and ordered new poll within 60 days.
