• Form 34As are totalled to create Form 34Bs and then the Form 34C which determines who should be President
• The physical Form 34A from the polling station should match the online version on the IEBC portal
Confusion now surrounds the August 9 presidential election with claim and counter-claim about what actually happened.
However the bottom line remains the Form 34As. They were all verified and uploaded to the IEBC public portal.
Are those Form 34As genuine? That is the crux of the matter.
If they are genuine, they can be added up to create the definitive Form 34Bs for each constituency, and then totalled to create the Form 34C to tell us who is our new President.
It has been alleged that some Form 34As were inflated or tampered with. That should be an easy matter to prove. There is a physical Form 34A from each of the 46,000 polling stations signed by the polling agents present.
If a physical Form 34A does not match the online Form 34A, that is a smoking gun, clearly demonstrating electoral fraud. But if the physical Form 34As match the online ones, then there is no evidence of fraud.
It would be a betrayal of natural justice to reject the votes cast unless the Form 34As are demonstrably falsified. The Supreme Court will now decide that matter for us. Whatever happens, we must remain peaceful and accept their verdict.
