Nyeri - The Democratic Party (DP) which is associated with former President Mwai Kibaki has declined to dissolve to join the new Jubilee party.
DP national chairman Esau Kioni said though they support Jubilee government, they will not disband the party.
Kioni said DP was not involved in a resolution passed in Naivasha last week by the Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) steering committee.

The committee led by Meru Senator, Kiraitu Murungi decided that all parties supporting Jubilee coalition should be dissolved by December.
Kioni explained that the new Jubilee outfit will lock out many good candidates during next elections because of corruption.
He added that his party has not made any agreement with the steering committee and will do so if assured that DP’s future is secure.
“DP will not be disbanded but will offer direct nominations to candidates whom we find fit to vie for different seats including governorship. Currently, we are supporting President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government,” he said while speaking in Othaya.
