Cord’s delay in naming candidate a gift to Jubilee
Our country offers a good study of what politics is able to achieve in a modern state. This is both in terms of positive transformation and the mess it can create. Our politics, since independence, has been chequered. Nonetheless, we have remained hopeful that we will become a better country. Obviously, the future is always unpredictable and we must always put the best mechanisms in place to secure it. Political parties obviously compete to win. Some develop better strategies to win than the others to have an upper hand in elections. In this, the Jubilee Party surely has a head start. To start with, Cord is yet to settle on a flagbearer. This creates uncertainty and instability in the opposition coalition. There is likelihood of the three parties in Cord disintegrating, given each of them has a presidential candidates. What happens to Cord could either mean an early Christmas for JP or a very tough general election.
