Last night there was a standoff at the Migori county tallying centre after ODM supporters engaged in a shouting match with IEBC officials demanding that by-election results be displayed.
Police had to protect county returning officer Ruth Kulundu from angry agents and youths.
IEBC commissioner Abdi Gulaye said no results will be read, citing that there is no mischief.
“Please let us sit and wait for the results to come, we will announce after we get all forms,” Gulaye said.
Voting closed at 5 pm in the 826 polling stations. The county has about 388,000 registered voters.
The by-election was however characterised by low voter turn out, only 36% of registered voters turned out to vote in what emerged to be a two horse race.
