Raila to reg­is­ter Cord as a party for 2017 Gen­eral Elec­tion

The Star (Kenya) - - Top Stories / National -

Cord plans to reg­is­ter as a sin­gle ‘cor­po­rate’ Cord Party, al­low­ing af­fil­i­ates to field can­di­dates on their tick­ets in some ar­eas and un­der Cord tick­ets in oth­ers. The um­brella strat­egy aims to im­prove op­po­si­tion chances of vic­tory next year against the Ju­bilee Party. It aims to strengthen Cord, keep it to­gether and al­lay fears of widen­ing cracks within the coali­tion. It is likely to re­sem­ble Narc, the po­lit­i­cal party that re­moved Kanu from power in 2002. ODM, Wiper, Ford Kenya and 10 other af­fil­i­ated par­ties will re­tain their iden­ti­ties.
