Kenyan Opposition Leader Withdraws From Election Rerun



NAIROBI, Kenya—Opposition leader Raila Odinga withdrew from a rerun of Kenya’s presidential election, saying the vote wouldn’t be fair and calling for protests across the East African nation.

The surprise move on Tuesday casts one of Africa’s biggest economies and most stable democracies deeper into uncertainty following a decision by its Supreme Court to annul the results of the initial poll in August, in which the incumbent president, Uhuru Kenyatta, was declared winner.
