Po­lit­i­cal wind has changed, poll re­sults will be 50-50 for Cord, JP – Sha­ban

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Coast -

The Ju­bilee Party is plan­ning on tak­ing over the ma­jor­ity of elec­tive posts in Coast from Cord in the elec­tions, an MP has said.

Taveta MP Naomi Sha­ban said the po­lit­i­cal wind has changed at the Coast as most as­pi­rants have ex­pressed in­ter­est to run on a Ju­bilee ticket.

She spoke to the Star on the phone on Mon­day.

“Many as­pi­rants have ex­pressed in­ter­est to run on the JP ticket. This shows the at­mos­phere on the ground has changed,” Sha­ban said.

Sev­eral leaders, in­clud­ing Kwale Gov­er­nor Salim Mvurya, have de­camped to JP.

Sha­ban said in the worst sce­nario, the posts will be shared 50-50 be­tween Cord and JP.

“The peo­ple ap­pre­ci­ate the de­vel­op­ment spurred by Ju­bilee, that is why they are mov­ing,” she said.

The MP said Cord has not spurred growth at the Coast, which is why leaders are de­camp­ing.
