>Kenya's Supreme Court has annulled the result of last month's presidential election, citing irregularities, and ordered a new one within 60 days.

>The election commission had declared incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta the winner by a margin of 1.4 million votes.

>Raila Odinga, Mr Kenyatta's opponent, said the commission was "rotten" and demanded resignations and prosecutions.

>President Kenyatta said he disagreed with the court ruling but that he would respect the decision.

>He called on Kenyans to do the same and remain calm.

>Other elections in Africa have been annulled or cancelled but this appears to be the first time on the continent that an opposition court challenge against a presidential poll result has been successful.

>Chief Justice David Maraga said the 8 August election had not been "conducted in accordance with the constitution" and declared it "invalid, null and void".

>He said the verdict was backed by four of the six Supreme Court judges.

>The announcement drew cheers from opposition supporters both inside and outside the courtroom.

>The court ruling did not attribute any blame to President Kenyatta's party or campaign.

What did the judges say was wrong?

>Justice Maraga said the election commission had failed "to conduct the presidential election in a manner consistent with the dictates of the constitution."

>He said the commission had committed irregularities "in the transmission of results", adding that the court would provide details in a full judgment within 21 days.

>Dissenting judges said that the Nasa opposition alliance - which had petitioned the Supreme Court - failed to prove claims that the polls had been rigged.
