Jubilee has no preferred candidates, says DP Ruto

06 August 2016, 23:16

Nairobi - Jubilee party has no preferred candidates for any seats in the 2017 elections, Deputy President William Ruto has said.

Ruto said all the aspirants eyeing various political seats in the coming general election must present themselves and appeal to the electorate to support them.

“Those interested in any seat must present themselves to the people and seek votes. That is the nature of democracy,” said Ruto on Friday as he launched a women empowerment project at Kong’asis Primary School in Nakuru County.

“President Uhuru Kenyatta does not have  any preferred candidates for the various seats in 2017 , neither do I. All flag bearers  of the Jubilee Party must go through nominations," he said, adding that the party leadership believes in democracy.

Ruto’s sentiments comes  days after 18 MPs from Western Kenya appealed to him and President Kenyatta to endorse Water Cabinet Secretary, Eugene Wamalwa's bid for the Nairobi gubernatorial seat .

The lawmakers led by Jubilee party Deputy Chief whip Benjamin Washiali who is also the Mumias East MP said President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto must back Wamalwa to unseat Kidero.
