Nairobi, Kenya - Kenya's elections appear a tight race between two coalitions with 13% of the votes counted.
The partial results of Monday's elections show that Uhuru Kenyatta, the Jubilee Coalition candidate, is in the lead with 56% of the votes while Raila Odinga, the Coalition for Reform and Democracy (CORD) candidate, has 39.7%. Musalia Mudavadi is third with about 2.5% of the votes.
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) head, Issack Hassan, said voter turnout was likely to rise beyond 70%.
Kenyatta received majority of the votes cast in the Rift Valley, home of his running mate, William Ruto.
