Knut had earlier requested the Teachers Service Commission to give teachers interested in politics leave of absence from work to enable them concentrate on campaigns, a request Sossion noted had been turned-down.
On presidential elections, Sossion noted the union was above tribal affiliation and that its choice would strictly be based on the agenda one has for the country.
Early in the year, presidential aspirant and Gichugu MP, Martha Karua, met Knut women leaders from the whole country in Nairobi, but Sossion pointed out the meeting was a mentorship for the women leaders. The Narc-Kenya leader is one of the most focused women MPs in the country.
"She was simply mentoring our women leaders and it had nothing to do with whether the union supports her bid or not. After all, most of the aspirants are yet to roll-out their agenda," added Sossion.
The controversy surrounding the election date and whether the 8-4-4 system of education should be scrapped or not, could also be a deciding factor of who teachers may back.
Knut has so far rejected scrapping off of the 8-4-4 system and opposed the March 4, 2013, election date.
However, it remains to be seen how the current crop of unionist are likely perform come the elections and whether they can match their predecessors such as the late Tom Mboya and the late JJ Mugalla both of who found their way into politics.
The massively popular and flamboyant Mboya was one of the countryâs key post-Independence politicians.
