Speaking to members of the Bunge La Mwananchi caucus on Tuesday, Raila said they will dispatch over 450,000 agents across the country in order to protect its presidential votes.

In strategy dubbed “adopt a polling station”, Raila said that Nasa will have at least 10 agents in every polling station to “stop Jubilee from rigging the election”.

“You are soon going to get information on how to adopt a polling station,” Raila told the Bunge La Mwananchi caucus at the Orange House.

“Every polling station must be manned and we must have people there whose telephone number is known at the secretariat for daily communication with the centre,” the opposition leader said.

Raila said their agents will also check those who have not voted to convince them to do so.

“The team with the register of voters in that station, will check who has voted and who has not. Those who have not will be brought to vote,” Raila said.

Parallel tallying centres

He dismissed the Deputy President William Ruto's dismissal on having a parallel tallying system during the August polls.

“Political parties are allowed to have tallying centres. I have been hearing them say nobody is allowed to have a parallel tallying centre. No!” he said.

The opposition had been harshly criticised that in 2013, Cord failed to deploy agents in Jubilee strongholds thereby creating room for manipulation of results.

Raila likened the strategy to that used by opposition candidate Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana against then President John Mahama.

Addo later trounced Mahama and became Ghana's new president.
