Nairobi, Monday, October 8, 2012
Prime Minister Raila Odinga will on Wednesday (10th October 2012) meet ODM aspirants for the seats of Governor, Senate, Member of Parliament and Women Representative from all over the country.
The meeting, which has been convened by the National Elections Board (NEB) of the Party, is expected to give a chance to the aspirants of the above mentioned positions to interact with the new elections board and also seek to allay fears of unfairness during the party primaries scheduled for the 4th, 5th and 6th of December this year.
The Party Leader will also use the occasion to assure the aspirants that the nomination exercise will be free, fair and transparent and that there will be no sacred cows during and after the exercise.
NEB Chairman, (Rtd) Dr. Henry Kathurima, said they expect over 2,000 aspirants from all the corners of the country who have expressed their interest in vying for the seats of Governor, Senator, Member of Parliament and Women Representative in their respective regions and Counties.
The Board is in the process of organizing meetings for aspirants for the seat of County Representative at County headquarters. Dr. Kathurima said they could not invite County Representative aspirants because they are many and that they will be meeting them during the Board’s County tours.
The meeting at Bomas of Kenya is scheduled to start at 9.00 am.
