Raila Makes U-Turn, Issues New Order on Repeat Election

NASA leader Raila Odinga has made a surprise about-turn after...

The former Prime Minister stated that his coalition would not boycott the next election, but insisted that there was a need for his concerns to be addressed ahead of the election date.

"We are not boycotting the election. We said we want to participate but under certain conditions that will ensure the election will be free, fair and credible,” Odinga stated during an interview with KTN on Tuesday evening.

Queried on what he would do if NASA would call for mass demonstrations if the IEBC ignored NASA's demands, Odinga was non-committal, explaining that “we will deal with that when time comes".

The ODM presidential candidate appeared to soften his earlier stance that his coalition would not participate in the repeat election on the 17th of October.

"IEBC is the thief that stole the elections on behalf of Jubilee. This is the Kibra Declaration. There will be no election on October 17,” the NASA leader had last week told a rally in Kibra.

The Opposition has listed nine issues which they would for action ahead of the repeat presidential election.

The IEBC has, however, has gone contrary to some of the demands including retaining Ezra Chiloba as its CEO, as well as contracting Dubai based company Al Ghurair to print the Presidential ballot papers.
