NARC Kenya not part of CORD, says Karua

28 September 2016, 19:55

Nairobi - The NARC Kenya party is not part of the CORD coalition, party leader Martha Karua has said.

Karua said that as much as the party is an opposition party, it remains an independent party and is not part of the CORD coalition.

Speaking Wednesday morning in Nakuru town, Karua said that her party continues to work closely with other opposition parties’ including CORD to put government to task but it remains independent.

She insisted that NARC Kenya will field candidates for all elective seats including the presidency during the 2017 general elections saying that they had no plans of merging with any other coalition

Karua added that NARC Kenya was a party whose sole aim is to offer alternative leadership to Kenyans.

“NARC Kenya is all about offering alternative leadership to Kenyans and we are working towards that. We will be fielding candidates for all elective seats including the president in 2017 and we are in the process of rolling out a members recruitment drive in all corners of the country in preparation for the 2017 polls,” she said.

“Let it be made clear that we are an independent party and as much as we are working with other opposition parties, we remain to be independent as NARC Kenya,” she said.

Karua was however not categorical whether she will be the presidential candidate of the party, saying that she will make the right political decision when the right time comes.
