“Present at the function included Prime Minister Raila Odinga, who is the party leader, chairman Henry Kosgey and secretary general Anyang’ Nyong’o.
Raila expressed hopes that the board will live up to expectations.
He said the party wants one third of the nominations to be of the opposite gender. “We want many women to come forward. We will give them equal opportunity by ensuring there will be no discrimination or intimidation in the nomination process,” said the PM.
Kosgey ruled out any direct nominations during the party polls. “Nominations will be done by secret ballot. You must compete. Party democracy must be exhibited from the very beginning,” he said.
Raila said the party would release its manifesto at the appropriate time, noting that the delegates’ convention will be held in two months.
