"But the only basis is the full judgment of the Supreme Court, which will not be out until 21 days", Limo said.
"I think those robes they wear make them think that they are more clever than the rest of us Kenyans", Kenyatta said of the Supreme Court judges, taking specific aim at Maraga. He urged calm in a country that has a history of postelection violence.
His main rival Raila Odinga, from Kenyan opposition National Super Alliance (NASA), received 44.7 percent of the votes.
Opposition members danced in the streets, marvelling at the setback for Kenyatta, the son of the country's first president, in the long rivalry between Kenya's leading political families.
"It is indeed a very historic day for the people of Kenya, and by extension to the people of the continent of Africa".
At least 33 court cases were filed contesting election results before the presidential election was annulled, said Andrew Limo, spokesman for the election board. After Odinga lost that race, he challenged the result and weeks of bitter ethnic battles followed, leaving more than 1,200 people dead.
Kenyatta's comments are coming days after his opponent Raila Odinga called for the resignation and prosecution of some election commission officials.
"A new presidential election will take place on October 17". He also said the role of global observers who came to Kenya for the vote must be examined because they put stability ahead of credibility and had "moved fast to sanitize fraud". The trade unionist had criticised election observers days after the vote for giving it a clean bill of health.
The IEBC had been widely criticized for irregularities in the transmission of the results.
Kenyatta has committed to campaigning hard to win the new election while Odinga has called for IEBC personnel to be replaced - and prosecuted - in light of the court ruling. "We clearly have a problem", he said, referring to the judiciary.
Many countries, including the United States, had already congratulated Kenyatta.
This fearless and honest act must be applauded by all those who stand for the truth and the rule of law in the world, as also this is the first time in Africa that a court has ruled against the election win of an incumbent based on a court challenge by the opposition. Instead of seeking to prove enough votes were fake to undermine the vote - an nearly impossible task in the two weeks the court had to give its judgement - Odinga's supporters sought to demonstrate that the online tallying process lacked integrity.
Friday's court ruling was greeted with surprise in Kenya and elsewhere because the judiciary has rarely shown such independence from the executive.
"We will only go to the elections when we are sure that the ones organizing the elections are people who will not side with one side or the other".
The announcement drew cheers from opposition supporters both inside and outside the courtroom.
