Politicians across the political divide are burning the midnight oil in a bid to ensure that they secure party tickets as the party leaders have embarked on consensus to avoid bitter nomination fall outs.
In an interview with News night, ODM Chairman John Mbadi revealed that the candidates who will not be successful either at the consensus level or at the ballot, they will only be given appointments when the next government is formed if you qualify for those positions.
“For Mombasa gubernatorial race, we are trying to persuade one of our candidates to accept that the opponent is more popular. However, if we reach a dead end, we will let them go through universal suffrage,” John Mbadi asserted.
UDA Secretary general Veronica Maina urged parliamentarians to consider funding all political parties who have reached a certain threshold to a certain level.
“There is no way you will democratize a nation before you democratize political parties,” Veronica said.
Agatha Solitei remarked, “We have adopted a very consultative method; we are in constant touch with all our aspirants. We shall also have an electronic system for transmitting the results.”
