ODM Reiterates Intention for CORD to Field Joint Candidates


The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy ( CORD ) has for the past several months been involved in by-elections across the country in which it has taken a joint approach and will take the same approach in the December by-elections.

As a democratic party, the ODM allows its members both elected and non-elected the freedom to express themselves on party matters. In the same breath, the party also believes that party members are obliged to respect certain decisions the party makes for the purposes of unity.

In this regard, the party held a consultative meeting at Orange House that brought together the leadership from Gusii region to chart the way forward ahead of the by-elections. During the meeting, it was agreed that CORD speaks with one voice and rally all our supporters behind the Coalition candidates.

Finally, whereas ODM appreciates efforts by a section of Members of the National Assembly to try and arrive at a bipartisan approach on the ICC cases in The Hague, such engagements should be inter-party. However, ODM reiterates that it would support any negotiations that are in the interest of the whole nation and not just a section of it or one side of the political divide.

Hon. Magerer Langat,
Executive Director - ODM
