NASA's New Announcement After Withdrawing From Election

  • The National Super Alliance (NASA) has given its supporters the next course of action following Raila Odinga's withdrawal from the October 26th election.

    Siaya Senator James Orengo announced that massive demonstrations under the 'No Reforms No Elections' banner would kick off in earnest on Wednesday.

    He declared: "NASA Parliamentary Group will meet the people of Kenya at Uhuru Park at 9 am tomorrow to speak on our resolutions."

    He further gave the itinerary for the demonstrations stating that the protests would begin at Uhuru Park after which they would head to Haile Sellasie Avenue, then Moi Avenue, down to Kenyatta Avenue back to Uhuru Park before finally heading to IEBC offices at Anniversary Towers.

    He stated that the massive demonstrations would be replicated across the nation.

    The coalition announced the official withdrawal of NASA Presidential Candidate Raila Odinga and his running mate Kalonzo Musyoka from the October 26th election.

    A statement by the coalition read in part: "It is our conviction that our withdrawal is in the best interest of the country and a win-win for everyone."

    They noted a failure by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to adequately address their 'Irreducible Minimums' demands for the fresh election.

    They named IEBC Chief Executive Officer Ezra Chiloba as the mastermind of alleged election-rigging and pledged that there would be no election with him at the helm.

    With Jubilee close to passing amendments to electoral laws described by the opposition as 'retrogressive and draconian', the political landscape of the country is set to drastically change ahead of the fresh election.
