His supporters are unhappy at a new election law and fear it could lead to a walkover victory for incumbent President Uhuru Kenyatta, in the re-run of the election later this month.

According to Magaya, the requirement for one to sign Form 24A does not apply in the context of the election at hand.

In a statement on Wednesday evening, the electoral commission said the former Prime Minister is still in the contest despite announcing he had bowed out.

The Supreme Court last month rejected the August election in which Mr Kenyatta was declared the victor after Mr Odinga challenged the results, saying hackers infiltrated the electoral commission's computer system to manipulate the vote in Mr Kenyatta's favour.

Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga were due to face off in a repeat election later this month after the Supreme Court annulled an August ballot - in which the president Kenyatta was declared the victor - due to election irregularities and ordered the election to be conducted within 60 days.

"Six tough options after Raila pull out", reported the Standard newspaper which pointed out that Odinga's surprise move and demands for fresh race in 90 days deepens country's political crisis even as Jubilee insists that October 26 poll will go on as planned.

Then on Tuesday, Kenyatta's main challenger Odinga plunged the country into uncharted waters by saying he was pulling out, accusing the election commission (IEBC) of failing to deliver vital reforms.

The decision was held up as an opportunity to deepen Kenyan democracy.

Odinga is counting on a ruling by the Supreme Court after 2013 elections - in which he failed to have the result overturned - which sought to clarify what happens if an election is invalidated.
