Opposition Chief Raila Odinga is today expected to announce his next move after the electoral commission declared President Uhuru Kenyatta winner of the repeat vote he boycotted.

Reports suggested Raila's National Super Alliance (Nasa) will convene a Parliamentary Group meeting this morning to review the development before his anticipated announcement thereafter.

Raila has previously indicated his National Super Alliance (Nasa) could explore civil disobedience to pressure Jubilee government as the seven-day deadline to file a presidential election petition at the Supreme Court has started ticking.

He has demanded a fresh presidential election within 90 days arguing the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission failed to meet Nasa's irreducible minimums for participation in last Thursday's vote.

Raila kept his supporters on Monday guessing after he deferred his planned announcement to today at Wiper Headquarters, expected to further escalate his political contest with Uhuru.

The Nasa leader spent the better part of Monday at his office as the country waited with bated breath for the announcement of the Presidential results.

Even as he took a low profile on Monday, he sent success and good wishes message to the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) candidates and also sent condolences following the demise of Eldoret Diocese Bishop Cornelius Korir.

Raila successfully petitioned the Supreme Court to annul Uhuru's victory following the disputed August 8 presidential elections but later announced his withdrawal from the repeat vote.

His name was however on the ballot after the IEBC argued he did not sign a requisite statutory form to formally pull out.
