IEBC and Jubilee insisted that Raila must be on ballot-Here’s why

The Opposition has claimed that both Jubilee Party and the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) want Raila Odinga on the Ballot  at all cost because without Raila, the October 26 elections would not be considered legitimate.

NASA’s chief presidential campaigner Musalia Mudavadi explained that IEBC’s insistence that Mr ODinga signs form 24 A or be on the ballot is also emanating from the fact that the electoral technology kits have already been reconfigured to accommodate both President Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila and nobody else.

“Basically both Jubilee Party and IEBC are facing the question of legitimacy. Unless there is a credible fresh election, the October 26 polls would not be credible,” said Mudavadi.

“The reason why they want Raila on the ballot at all costs is to therefore legitimise their elections if indeed they will be held.”

He said Raila’s letter to withdraw from the race was sufficient and legitimate and that calls by both Jubilee and IEBC to have Raila sign Form 24A was therefore suspect.

“In the first place, there were no nominations for the presidential candidates for the October 26 polls. So where does this decision to sign a form emanate from, on what basis,” said Mudavadi.

“The game they want to play, if he signs form 24A they will then request the rest of the presidential candidates to pull out and then declare Uhuru president on 26th.”

Makueni Senator Mutula Kilonzo Junior said Raila’s withdrawal will cause an unprecedented political and legal quagmire, since,according to him the country is at a loss on how to interpret the Supreme Court ruling that ordered for elections in 60 days.
