"Consequently, when government is established contrary to the Constitution and the law, defiance and disobedience become an imperative,” said Raila. He added that the duty of every citizen who loves freedom, who respects the Constitution, of every patriot, is to resist dictatorship and to fight to restore a government established in compliance with the Constitution — "the only government that can be so established is a government elected in a free, fair, and credible election". The five-point game plan to transform the NASA coalition into a resistance movement included embarking on a national campaign of defiance of illegitimate governmental authority and non-cooperation with all its organs and boycott of goods and services offered by businesses for whose benefit the dictatorship is being established.

We return our original assignment. That assignment at the start of the current journey was and remains that we will be the people who will end electoral fraud not only in Kenya but in all of Africa,” said Raila. In a statement read in turns by co-principals Moses Wetang'ula, Musalia Mudavadi, and Raila, the three were categorical that today’s elections were fraudulent and that they would not participate in them. Second attempt “The Jubilee Party will make its second attempt to establish a government in defiance of the Constitution by holding an election whose very organisers have said cannot be credible. "Supreme Court judges, either intimidated or compromised, stayed away from the court earlier today (yesterday), making that institution unable to adjudicate in the critical affair of today’s election.

According to Wetang'ula, Jubilee has reassembled and mounted another attempt to stay in power by means that are clearly undemocratic and unconstitutional, adding that like in August, Jubilee will today attempt to stay in power by forcing a sham election.
