A new survey by Northrift News has given inkling as to who would win the Ainabkoi MP Seat in August 8, 2017. William Chepkut would beat Incumbent MP Samuel Chepkong’a should elections be held today.

The online survey showed that Chepkut who was a long time personal aide of the late former powerful KANU era Minister Nicholas Biwott, would win the election with 50.62% of the total votes cast should elections be held today. The poll also indicated that Chepkong’a would garner 44.89% of the votes.

The survey done on June 10, in which 646 responded showed that Joseph Kemboi (ODM) would collect 2.32% of the total votes cast while another candidate Raymond Toroitich (KANU) would garner 1.24% of votes. Others are Wycliffe Mosi (Independent) and Lina Komen (Independent) who would garner 0.77% and 0.15% respectively.

The survey indicates that the contest for the Ainabkoi Parliamentary Seat is a two-horse race and is a close call between William Chepkut and incumbent MP Samuel Chepkong’a.

Chepkut is running as an independent candidate while Chepkong’a is seeking a second term on a Jubilee Party ticket.

The duo contested for the Jubilee party ticket in April. Chepkut had initially been declared winner but the National Assembly Legal Affairs Chairman Samuel Chepkong’a challenged the results. The appeals tribunal ordered repeat poll in one polling station – Munyaka and the vocal legislator won the Jubilee Party ticket.

This survey comes less than one month to the August 8 polls.
