(+) HEADACHE OVER PARTY PRI­MARIES

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Nairobi -

Sus­pi­cion, in­fight­ing and fears of bun­gled nom­i­na­tions have shaken the Ju­bilee Party, as politi­cians fear JP may lose its ma­jor­ity in Par­lia­ment. The com­pe­ti­tion is so in­tense and the predica­ment so se­ri­ous that key Ju­bilee lead­ers want the IEBC to con­duct the nom­i­na­tions. Signs of trou­ble emerged in Au­gust at Ufunga­mano House, where Nairobi gov­er­nor hope­fuls ex­changed blows, abruptly end­ing a meet­ing con­vened to agree on joint cam­paigns. Ju­bilee sup­ported stiffer reg­u­la­tions to curb party hop­ping. This will en­sure nom­i­na­tion losers stick to the party.
