Kenya said on Monday it was reviving investigations into 72 murders as well as allegations of forced eviction and arson during post-election violence in 2007-2008 after victims and their families came forward to give statements. The fighting in late 2007 and early 2008, some of the worst in Kenya's history, erupted after Raila Odinga, then an opposition leader, accused then-President Mwai Kibaki's party of stealing the election. Uhuru Kenyatta, now president, and his deputy William Ruto were among six Kenyans charged at the International Criminal Court over their alleged roles in the deadly inter-ethnic violence.

The Nevada Supreme Court made Joe Biden’s win in the state official on Tuesday, approving the state's final canvass of the Nov. 3 election. The unanimous action by the seven nonpartisan justices sends to Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak results that will deliver six electoral votes from the western U.S. battleground state to Biden. The court action drew extra scrutiny amid legal efforts by the state GOP and Trump campaign to prevent sending vote-by-mail ballots to all 1.82 million active registered voters and then to stop the counting of the 1.4 million votes that were cast.

Hungary’s government is considering an electoral law amendment that would make it harder for opposition parties to pursue their unity strategy against the powerful ruling party in future elections. After a 2012 overhaul by the ruling Fidesz party and its leader, Prime Minister Viktor Orban, Hungary’s two-ballot election system has allowed parties to field individual candidates in the country’s 106 single-member voting districts and to present voters with a national party list. Currently, election law requires that parties must run candidates in a minimum of 27 voting districts in at least nine counties and the capital Budapest in order to present a national list.
A police officer who slapped a female colleague on the bottom with a ruler and told her she was "sexy" has been allowed to keep his job after the victim said she had no complaints and "would work with him again tomorrow". Detective Sergeant Paul Elrick, 48, told the junior officer she looked and smelt “gorgeous” before pinging her across the buttocks. A disciplinary hearing was told it was not the only example of inappropriate behaviour he had displayed towards the officer. On another occasion he had squeezed her shoulders and tickled her causing her to jump and had also sent her "crass" and "sexualised" Facebook messages when she was off work. But the disciplinary hearing was told the female officer, known only as PC X, had not wanted to make a complaint however the matter had been reported by a third party. Mr Elrick, who joined Sussex Police 24 years ago and was based in Hastings, appeared before a police disciplinary panel via video link to face charges that his behaviour amounted to gross misconduct. The officer accepted had behaved like an “immature schoolboy” but refuted the gross misconduct charges. Giving evidence to the panel Mr Elrick claimed he knew the junior officer very well and was only trying to be humorous. He said: “We have a similar personality. We have always got on very well. We easily spoke to each other. “The comments are crass. They are immature and school ground wording which I am not proud of whatsoever. I certainly do not treat women with such crass discourtesy.” Mr Elrick admitted that just three months later, in June last year, he pinged a ruler across her bottom as she walked past his desk. He described it as “schoolboy behaviour” and “stupid” but denied it was sexually motivated. He said: "I understand it is behaviour that is not warranted. I allowed my familiarity with PC X to blur my professional judgement. “We had known each other for so long the lines were blurred between my professional responsibilities and my schoolboy behaviour. “It’s an action I deeply regret and I am personally disappointed in it. There was nothing going through my mind. There was no sexualised behaviour and at no point around this was there any sexual motivation.” Giving evidence anonymously, she told the panel the messages she received from her senior officer and the pinging of her buttocks with a ruler were done within the context of the long-term friendship the pair enjoyed. PC X told the panel: “It was a small malfunction within our friendship. It was dealt with at the time. It was a one-off. I’d work with him again tomorrow.” However Robert Talalay, for the force, said it was important to take a stand on behalf of the reputation of Sussex Police. The disciplinary panel ruled he could keep his job handing him a final written warning. Adam James, for Mr Elrick, said the type of behaviour which is acceptable between two friends is not necessarily appropriate at a professional level. The panel chair, Muzamil Khan, ruled he could keep his job and instead handed down a final written warning.
