Raila's team reveals date of naming his 'cabinet'

New major changes in Nasa have been proposed, few weeks after the swearing-in of Raila Odinga.

The organ, according Nasa, is missioned to be the Opposition’s top decision-making organ and will be headed by the former Prime Minister Mr Raila Odinga.

A strategy papers proposing the formation of the new body revealed that the Opposition is expected to name a cabinet and key members of the NPCA during a convention.

The team led by Nasa strategist and economist David Ndii, argues that the major goal would be convening a fresh presidential election, which was earlier alluded to by Mr Odinga on the BBC’s HARDtalk, where he said he wanted elections in August.

“This will be done during our national convention at the end of this month. Our goal is to see the people’s assembly process culminate in a presidential election under a new electoral regime by August this year,” NASA strategist David Ndii said on Wednesday.

People’s Assemblies  

The effectiveness of the yet to be launched arm of the Opposition, Dr Ndii  revealed, is set to work directly with NASA-friendly county governments and county assemblies.

There are plans, to have Mr Odinga declared the ‘dully elected president’ of the Republic of Kenya, even as the oath which he took on January 30 had had pangs on his backyard.

According to the strategy paper, Raila will be declared the duly elected “president” at the launch of the first NPCA and become the presiding “president” of the powerful NPCA until it achieves its objectives.

NASA has lined up a number of activities to achieve its goals. The strategy also reveals the resolutions of the national convention will be validated by the people through a referendum.  National duties

“The convention will inaugurate the national leadership that will support the people’s president in this most solemn of national duties,” Dr Ndii said.
