Kenyan main opposition coalition NASA is now pushing for a fresh presidential election to be held in August this year, under a new electoral body.
NASA Technical Committee Chair David Ndii says to achieve the single presidential election, the coalition intends to push for a referendum that seeks to have a change in the government’s structure.
In their referendum push, NASA also intends to have changes to electoral laws, as well as introduce implementation of police reforms and strengthen the Judiciary.
In addition, the Ndii-led team says it will also focus on devolved taxation to address the devolution question, and how resources are shared amongst counties.
But before rolling out the drive, the NASA co-principals have been scheduled to tour Narok, Meru, Kisii, Wajir and Uasin Gishu Counties to conclude the People’s Assemblies forum within the next three weeks, before holding the national convention.
