They also want to withdraw its signature from the coalition agreement deposited in March this year.

The revelations come only hours after parties associated with Azimio led by the Green Congress Party of Kenya (GCK) accused the party officials of "bullying" stating the small parties in the coalition have been disrespected and treated with contempt.

According to GCK Party Chairman, Hillary Alila, the "bigger parties" which include Jubilee Party, Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) and Wiper Party of treating them as "though they were children of a lesser God."

"We are in Azimio because we believe in the collective philosophy that the Right Honourable Raila Odinga is the best Kenyan to become our fifth President, but the likes of ODM and Jubilee are behaving as if we are not partners in the (Azimio) Coalition," Alila insisted.

GCK and PAA are among 23 other political parties that make up the Azimio La Umoja coalition.
