Nairobi - The CORD coalition can boycott the 2017 General Elections if they want as they will not win it, Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria says.
The coalition has said it will boycott the elections if Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang'ula is struck off the voters list by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC for voter bribery as is required by law.
CORD says that the process has so far been politicized but according to Kuria, they are just posing and looking for sympathy which they will not get from the public.
" They can boycott. It is not a political issue, the Wetangula one. It is a legal process and they know it," he said.
" Regardless, they will not win the elections, so boycotting it will not change anything," he added.
Wetangula was found guilty of bribing voters in the 2013 General Elections and according to the law he should lose his voters card as a result, which means he could also lose his seat as every elected member of Parliament must be a voter.
