Pressure mounts in CORD over the 2017 Presidential flag bearer

01 July 2016, 09:59

Nairobi - Wiper Democratic Movement Chairman Senator David Musila has challenged the CORD co-Principals to pick their candidate for the 2017 Presidential election.

Musila said that the coalition should name their flag bearer in 30 days.

All the three Principals have expressed interest in the top seat and called on the other two to rally their supporters behind them, even as both Kalonzo and Raila complained of political deceit in past elections.

Wetang’ula, who already launched his Presidential bid early this year has assured that they will nominate their candidate soon.

Kalonzo, who spoke during the launch of his website Thursday, said that he was tired of political betrayal.

He further accused the IEBC of interfering with the voters register to favour ruling coalition Jubilee and called for speedy reforms of the electoral body, Standard reports.

Cord has been pushing for IEBC reforms since April, saying the current commissioners cannot conduct a fair election.

Following a series of violent anti-IEBC protests, both CORD and Jubilee agreed to form a joint parliamentary select committee to reconstitute the IEBC ahead of the 2017 polls but nothing has happened yet.

Raila, who has been accused of having vested interests in the IEBC talks now claims that Jubilee is dragging the reform process in order to extent their stay in power, Daily Nation reports.

The election is scheduled for August 2017, but Raila claims that there is a plot by Jubilee to push it to December.
