CORD was shortchanged on IEBC deal, says official

24 August 2016, 20:48

Nairobi - A day after CORD principals endorsed the report prepared by a joint parliamentary special select committee on the removal of IEBC commissioners from office a senior ODM party official now claims that the coalition was shortchanged and given a raw deal during the negotiations.

The official who sought anonymity said that what CORD got from the negotiations is no what they were fighting for during the anti IEBC protests.

Speaking Wednesday in Nakuru town, he claimed that CORd negotiators in the special committee were reluctant to fight and agitate for a better deal.

He said that proposals of the committee will not help CORD in anyway during next years elections because the jubilee wing will still be in control of the commission.

"CORD got a raw deal from the negotiations because we never achieved what we wanted. What was agreed Will not bring any change in IEBC because the president will still determine who will serve as a commissioner at IEBC," he said.

"The people the President will appoint will feel indebted to him and this will cause them to be easily manipulated,"he added.

He said that the only way through which CORD can win next years elections is by ensuring that it mobilises its supporters to register as voters in masses and come out to vote.

"If CORD can mobilise all of its strongholds to register and vote in 2017 then it will be hard for jubilee to rig the polls due to the huge turnout otherwise if that doesn't happen then CORD should be ready for another rude shock," he said
