Nyong'o: ODM will use secret ballot during polls

27 February 2014, 10:13 Nechesa Chemoi

Nairobi - The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) outgoing Secretary General Anyang' Nyong'o Wednesday recommended that the party’s Friday elections be done through a secret ballot.

Nyong’o said the election was highly contested hence the need to hold it in a secret ballot for purposes of credibility.

Other members had proposed that the election be done by a show of hands or queuing, commonly known as ‘mlololongo’ to save time.

On the other hand, Judy Pareno, ODM’s National Elections Board Chair dismissed claims by some candidates that the delegates’ register had been tampered with to favour some candidates.

Some candidates were claiming that the board had removed the names of some delegates from the list and also added other names, but Pareno denied the claims.

“There is nothing we are hiding. We called 47 county chairmen to go through the list and see if there were any problems with the list to enable us solve it before the election,” she said.

The delegates will be expected to confirm their names on Friday morning at Kasarani before being allowed in the arena, where the voting will take place.
