Stanley Livondo has filed a petition before the court seeking to bar DP William Ruto from vying for the presidency.
According to Livondo, he is arguing that when articles 148,131 and 130 are combined then the President and DP are one thing.
Also included in the list are Cabinet Secretaries who are nominated by the President meaning they are one unit too.

Once the President completes his two terms in August 2022, the petitioner says that should also mark the end to the DP and hence should be barred from vying.
In addition to that, Cabinet Secretaries who have served before will be barred from serving in the executive as stipulated in the petition.
