ODM to review performance, halfway through Jubilee reign

04 August 2015, 09:49 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Orange Democratic Movement ODM will meet in Machakos next week to take stock of their time thus far, halfway through the Jubilee coalition's reign in power.

The party will meet at the Maanzoni Lodge in Machakos for the 2 day retreat.

The retreat will center on a number of issues. First will be the earmarked grass-root elections which will take place some time in September.

Second on the agenda will be the Okoa Kenya referendum which is at a critical stage in its life.

Currently, the party is in the process of verifying 1 million signatures which have been collected for the purpose of forcing through a public referendum.

It hopes that the referendum will be key to its strategy for the 2017 election and according to observers, will be key to the ODM and CORD plans for the 2017 General Elections.

" It is simple. The only real way ODM and CORD will make an impression in the 2017 elections is if they actually pull off a good result in the referendum, if it goes through," Political scientist Michael Njenga says.

" A win will be like a ruffling of feathers for Jubilee while a loss in their own initiative will be more or less curtains for them in the elections," he added.

Also to be spoken of at the retreat will likely be a strategy for the remaining time in which the Jubilee coalition will be in power, in regards to the legislature.

The opposition has struggled in the National Assembly due to the sheer size of the Jubilee side and will be seeking ways to counter it as election time nears.
