Proposal to hold elections in 2018 driven by fear, says MP

26 August 2014, 14:23 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nakuru west Member of Parliament, Samuel Arama has said that he is not supporting legislators who want the next general elections to be held in 2018.

Arama said the MPs who are pushing the dates of the next general elections are afraid of losing their positions.

He added that such MPs are driven by their own interests and that is why they want to continue staying in power.  

Speaking to the media Monday, the MP said that the 2010 constitution is very clear on when the general elections are supposed to be held.

He said that changing the election date is a violation of Kenyan constitution.

“This should not be allowed,” he said.

On the push for plebiscite, Arama said the push is untimely and that it will only plunge the country into unnecessary expenses.

He reiterated that he will not relent in opposing the referendum since the Jubilee government is so far delivering on its agenda.

“There is absolutely no point for this country to hold the referendum. There are much better ways to address some of the issues that could be going wrong,” he said.

Arama also said that he had informed CORD leader, Raila Odinga that he will not be backing his push for referendum.

Recently, ODM officials in Nakuru town accused the MP of supporting Jubilee agenda instead of teaming up with other CORD leaders in pressing for a referendum.
