Nairobi - Narc Kenya party leader, Martha Karua has ruled out the possibility of dissolving her party to join the yet to be launched Jubilee Party.
The 2013 Presidential aspirant said she would not bow to the pressure of dissolving her party and work with Jubilee.
“Narc Kenya is preparing to field candidates to vie for all elective posts in the coming polls and we will not be joining Jubilee. We are on a mission of populizing our party policies for us to get more members and supporters ahead of these polls.
According to Karua, the Jubilee aims at killing multiparty democracy in the country by ordering the coalition’s affiliate parties to fold up and join the new party.

“When Jubilee starts going for other parties that are not part of the coalition then they are killing multiparty democracy in Kenya which is unconstitutional,” the former presidential candidate said.
She said Jubilee should know that the law allows political parties to work together if they believe in same policies.
“No party should order Narc Kenya or any other party to fold up and crossover; they should always apply the law in such matters.
Karua made the remarks in response to calls by a section of Jubilee members who asked her and Peter Kenneth to fold up their parties and join Jubilee ahead of the 2017 polls.
The two have also been asked to drop their presidential bids and support President Uhuru Kenyatta in the 2017 elections.
