The statement states that the EU expects a sense of responsibility and leadership by all parties, by upholding the procedures and institutions as set out by the Constitution of Kenya. It expects claims of malpractice are thoroughly investigated and any challenge to the results channelled through the Constitutionally mandated judicial mechanisms: the Rule of Law, respected by all, is the very foundation of all democracies, as Kenya is. It ends by stressing the EU commitment to Kenya in this endeavour. The links to the right of the site contain some day to posts, which may interest people researching Elections.
