ODM leaders asked members to brace for radical changes which will consolidate the party's grassroots support in the wake of wrangles in some branches. Sifuna said ODM had appointed a three-member committee to review nomination rules. ODM last year formed a task force headed by Catherine Mumma to review the party primaries rules. This stemmed from concerns that the regulations were to blame for the party’s dismal performance in elections. The team comprised party National Elections Board chairperson Judy Pareno (Nominated Senator), Jared Okelo (Nyando MP) and executive director Oduor Ong’wen. The team is expected to fine-tune the taskforce report and give recommendations to NEC on how future nominations will be conducted. In the past, the party has lost seats due to bungled primaries.
