ODM to cut nom­i­na­tion fees for women as­pi­rants

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics General -

ODM will re­duce nom­i­na­tion fees for women so that more women are elected to Par­lia­ment and county as­sem­blies next year. Party chair­man John Mbadi (pic­tured) said this will give women a fair ad­van­tage in all elec­tive po­si­tions. “The plan of ODM in im­ple­ment­ing the two-thirds gen­der rule is to pro­vide the re­quired space to en­sure that ma­jor­ity of our women are elected,” the Suba MP told the Star. The party also plans to con­struct a nom­i­na­tion list start­ing with women so more women get the posts.
