Kenya's opposition coalition the National Super Alliance (NASA) on Thursday demanded its candidate Raila Odinga be declared president, claiming it had evidence he had won this week's election.

Coalition leader Musalia Mudavadi told journalists that "confidential sources" within the IEBC had revealed the "actual results", showing Odinga had won the presidential poll with 8.04 million votes against incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta with 7.75 million.

The IEBC public website, which is publishing results as they stream in electronically from polling stations, shows Kenyatta with 8.1 million votes ahead of Odinga with 6.7 million.

According to the website, results are in from 98 percent of polling stations, however the IEBC has urged patience as it cross-checks results with scanned forms.

"Evidently, the accurate and lawful results in the presidential election is the transmission received from the polling stations and contained in the IEBC servers and not the unverified displays," said Mudavadi.

"We demand that the IEBC chairperson announce the presidential election results forthwith and declare Raila Amolo Odinga... as the duly elected president."
