Majority of jubilee MPs unhappy with nomination rules

22 August 2016, 14:35

Nairobi - As the new Jubilee party nears its official launch, it is now emerging that majority of members of parliament from both TNA and URP and not happy with the strict proposed nomination rules which will prevent them from jumping ship should they fail being nominated during the party primaries.

According to one TNA Member of Parliament from Nakuru County, majority of his colleagues are not happy with the nomination rules which they say will lock out potential and able leaders from seeking office using the jubilee party ticket.

He said that curtailing members of the jubilee party will make most of them opt vying as independent candidates.

Speaking Sunday in Nakuru town, the MP said that jubilee members of parliament are likely to oppose the nomination rules and call for amendments during the national delegates conference slated for next month.

“The proposed nominations rules are very strict and the truth is that majority of members of parliament are afraid that these rules might work against them and some are even contemplating vying as independent candidates,” he said.

“Many fear that they might be locked out of the 2017 race should the nominations fail to be transparent,” he said.

The new Jubilee party has proposed strict nomination rules that will prevent aspirants who fail to secure party nominations from decamping to rival parties.
