The Opposition wants two French companies investigated for interfering with the transparency of the August 8 general election.
NASA through its chief campaigner Musalia Mudavadi accused Safran Identity Company and Morpho of being part of an alleged rigging plot during the polls.
The firms are French digital-security companies whose equipment was used in the election. They provided two electronic systems that identified Kenyan voters and transmitted election results.
"Initiate a criminal investigations against the companies and its officials specifically Mr Laurent Lambert and Mr Axel Gaucher," Mudavadi said in a letter to French government officials dated September 7.
Lambert is the head of project Kenya and Gaucher the head of analytics.
Mudavadi accused Safran and Morpho of allowing unauthorised access to its servers and manipulating the transmission of results.
He also accused them of "fraudulently displaying fake statistics on a public portal purporting the same to be results of the elections".
Mudavadi said the company also refused to provide access to the Kenya elections servers and transactions logs as directed by the Supreme Court.
The Court on September 1 declared null and void the presidential election due to "irregularities and illegalities" in the transmission of results.
"The above stated unethical acts were designed to undermine the sovereignty of the people of Kenya and subvert their will," Mudavadi said.
"We look forward to your immediate and expeditious response and action".
OT-Morpho said in a statement to newsrooms that it will sue "unidentified people in both French and Kenyan courts for damaging the company’s reputation and honor".
The firm on Friday said they are willing to open its system for additional scrutiny by an independent body under the authority of Kenya’s election commission.
It noted that its systems were not tampered with to rig the outcome, calling the accusations an attempt to shift blame.
The company said it had transmitted all its logs to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, and was willing to participate in another external audit under the IEBC's authority.
On September 8, OT-Morpho dismissed claims that the system was hacked.
Through its Africa and Middle East director Olivier Charlanes, said the system used in the annulled August 8 polls was not tampered with.
This came after Opposition leader Raila Odinga successfully challenged the declaration of President Uhuru Kenyatta as winner of last month's election.
In its judgement, the Supreme Court declared the results null and void citing irregularities and illegalities.
