The Court of Appeal has reinstated Dr Issa Abdalla Tammy as the Governor of Lamu. This means there will not be a by-election in Lamu County on 2nd December, 2013. In addition, the Court of Appeal, sitting in Kisumu, suspended the nullification of election of Dr. Chris Bichage as Nyaibari Chache MP. Dr Bichage had appealed against the court's nullification of his election. Once served with the court order, IEBC will suspend plans to conduct the by-election until the appeal is heard and determined.
