JP to talk with IEBC on process and cost of pri­maries

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta’s Ju­bilee Party has writ­ten to the IEBC to ini­ti­ate dis­cus­sions on how it can con­duct the party’s nom­i­na­tions next year.

Pres­i­den­tial Cam­paign Sec­re­tariat boss Raphael Tuju yes­ter­day said they are seek­ing to ne­go­ti­ate with the IEBC on the process and the cost. “We have dis­patched a let­ter to the IEBC and ex­pect to start talks as soon as pos­si­ble,” he said.

Tuju hosted the Ju­bilee pres­i­den­tial cam­paign team un­veiled by Uhuru last week at the Bo­mas of Kenya. The meet­ing was held at the Ju­bilee Party Head­quar­ters in Pan­gani. They dis­cussed op­er­a­tions of the Sec­re­tariat. Last week, Uhuru said the party will al­low the IEBC to con­duct its nom­i­na­tions to pre­vent in­ter­nal in­ter­fer­ence. Ma­jor­ity leader Adan Duale said in two weeks, the National As­sem­bly will dis­cuss fresh bud­getary al­lo­ca­tions for the IEBC to in­clude fund­ing for party pri­maries.
