In 2013, probably the most significant presidential election in Africa will be in Kenya on March 4, and it is likely to have far-reaching implications not only for Kenya but also for the region. This election will be the first general election after the 2007-2008 post-election violence, and there is growing anxiety over whether there will be a repeat outbreak of violence. In addition, Kenya will be voting under a new constitution, which also has implications for the electoral process. Finally, two of the leading five candidates, Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto, have been indicted by the International Criminal Court for their involvement in the 2007 post-election violence.
