05 December 2012, 13:02

Nairobi - Daily Nation reports that, the next General Election will play a key role in determining the extent Kenya will go in achieving the projected economic growth of five per cent, a new report shows.

According to the 2012 Kenya Economic Update Report launched by the World Bank Wednesday, political risks to economic growth are ranked equally to growth risks posed by shocks in the global economy such as the persistent debt crisis in the European markets.

Report in part reads the conduct of the national elections in 2013 will determine international perceptions of Kenya for the years to come and greatly influence Kenya's medium-term economic prospects.
