For the parliamentary and county elective posts, the nomination will be presided over by County Election Board comprising of men and women of high integrity to be picked by NGC members.
An electoral college will use universal suffrage to cater for cases of special needs and interests according to the revised constitution.
“Nomination disputes will be resolved within two weeks to allow the party to prepare for campaigns for the General Election,” Nyong’o announced.
It was also resolved that 22 campaign teams to be called ODM Mashinani to popularise the party and its presidential candidate during the campaign period will be formed. Nyong’o announced that the NDC meeting at Bomas of Kenya had also resolved to change the slogan Chungwa Moja Maisha Bora to Chungwa Maisha Bora.
Those at the meeting included James Orengo, Dalmas Otieno, Joseph Nyagah, Franklin Bett, Musa Sirma, Mohamed Elmi, Amason Kingi, Beatrice Kones, Margaret Wanjiru, Joseph Nkaissery, Ayiecho Olweny, Hassan Joho, Elizabeth Ongoro, Julius Murgor and George Aladwa.
According to a survey conducted by Infotrak Harris, Raila remains the most preferred presidential aspirant if elections were to be held Saturday.
First round win
But the Langata MP would not win in the first round owing to the constitutional requirement of an over 50 per cent win. But the PM would fulfill the other requirement of garnering at least 25 per cent of votes cast in half of the 47 counties.
And according to the projections of Infotrak, Raila who has support in 27 counties is the only aspirant who would meet this requirement. His closest challenger, Deputy Prime Minister Uhuru Kenyatta would get over 25 per cent in just 13 counties.
Infotrak Harris CEO Angela Ambitho released the survey, conducted between June 7 and June 15, covering all the 47 counties, in Nairobi Friday.
Raila’s popularity is at 36.6 per cent followed by Uhuru at 21.9 per cent, which would necessitate a run-off between the two. Vice-President Kalonzo Musyoka is ranked third, with 9.6 per cent followed by Eldoret North MP, William Ruto (9.4 per cent), Deputy Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi (8.4 per cent), Gichugu MP Martha Karua (five per cent), and Gatanga MP Peter Kenneth (2.3 per cent).
Mudavadi is, however, the most preferred alternative presidential candidate for majority of Kenyans if their preferred presidential candidate is not on the ballot.
