Karua told the PM to walk out of the Coalition Government in October so that the elections could be held in December.
"As Narc Kenya we are doing our part but the PM has the power to do more. Walk out of the Government and save us this agony," Karua said during a news conference at Narc-K headquarters in Nairobi on Saturday.
"We would also want to hear the voice of the Church and the civil society as the Constitution gives us an avenue to ventilate," Karua said.
She alleged on Saturdayâs IEBC announcement was suspect as the Government had favoured the December date only for the commission to give the March 4 date immediately after President Kibaki expressed his preference for it.
"The IEBC then quickly gave the date preferred by the Executive," Karua said, arguing that this is despite an appeal coming up on March 22 over a previous court ruling on the election date.
"Elections are held within the term and not outside the term of parliament so that the incoming office holders take office before they go out of office," Karua said, arguing that the March 4, 2013 elections would make the President, the PM and current MPs earn salaries illegally for an extra three months.
She said this was irregular and vowed not to take a salary for the extra three months if the election date does not change.
