Uhuru party to hold its primaries in December
The National Alliance (TNA) will hold its party primaries on December 10 ahead of March elections.
This will see the party nominate candidates for the six elective posts of president, governor, senator, Member of Parliament, county women representatives and county ward representatives.
Speaking to the aspirants at the party headquarters in Nairobi, chairman Johnson Sakaja said TNA would not give direct nominations to any aspirant as has been alleged.
“The party is not giving direct nominations. The process will be free and fair as stated in our nomination rules,” he said.
TNA had presented its nomination rules to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission.
TNA director of communications Machel Waikenda said ?party rules were simple and accommodative.
“The rules establish structures in devolved government units, all aspirants and those in the special interest groups are all covered,” ?he said.
Waikenda urged aspirants to exercise caution during the campaign period to avoid cases of hate speech from the party members.
He referred to recent statement in the media where a leading presidential aspirant compared TNA to a snake, saying it was such divisive and insightful statements that could polarise the country.
He reiterated TNA was ready to accommodate all Kenyans committed to the transformation of the country.
“The party enjoys wide support nationally and as ?such will not be distracted by those still stuck in politics of the past,” he said.
