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.
