Here is what you have to pay if you want to contest elections under the Jubilee Party
The Jubilee Party has asked governors aspiring to run on its ticket to part with Sh100, 000 as nomination fee.
“Pursuant to Article 13 and 14 of the Jubilee Constitution and Rule 9 of the party nomination rules, the Jubilee Party invites all aspirants for the 2017 elections to register their intention to run,” the party's Secretary-General Veronica Maina said in a statement.
Those gunning for the senatorial positions will have to pay Sh50, 000 while aspiring Members of Parliament and Women will part with Sh30, 000.
Ward representatives will fork out Sh20, 000.
Lower fees compared to rival
The nomination fees for Jubilee are way below their main rivals, the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) in the Cord coalition.
Those vying for gubernatorial posts under ODM will have to part with Sh500, 000, those going for MP will pay Sh250, 000, MCAs will pay Sh25, 000 while the county woman representative will pay Sh125, 000.
However, all women, youth and persons with disabilities will be allowed to pay half the amounts for the respective positions.
The party also warned against those it said were swindling funds from unsuspecting aspirants.
“No agent or official has been appointed by the Jubilee Party to collect any fees on behalf of the party,” said Ms Maina.
The Jubilee nomination fees are non-refundable and payable under the account name “Jubilee Party” whose account number is 0180270840079 through the Equity Bank NHIF Branch.
