Why MPs are against the Jubilee Party

20 March 2016, 10:16 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - MPs are against the formation of the Jubilee Party. But why?

It has emerged that MPs are against the new party as they fear that nomination to various positions to vie for elective seats come the 2017 General Elections will be tough.

At present, the many affiliate parties enable leaders to seek nomination via various means and still compete.

With one party, the nomination process will be tough and will kill off defectors, as some would like, to allow them compete.

MPs and Senators as well as Governors are thus aware that they could face a battle for their positions.

" What about nomination? If you lose at JAP, which party do you go to to defend yourself?" an MP who did not want named told News24.

" The system will not help many. It should go," the MP who did not want to be named added.

That though will not deter the party form launching, one of the founder members Meru Senator Kiraitu Murungi says.

" We have the support of Kenyans. That is what matters most," he said.

It yet remains to be seen whether the MPs will agree to tow the line or more and more continue to weight their options elsewhere.
