Kenya Kwanza coalition will adopt dialogue in areas where coalition political parties have candidates to settle on only one aspirant.
Deputy President William Ruto and co-principal Musalia Mudavadi said they intend to field one coalition candidate per seat in all elective posts at the August polls.
“The candidates for MP and MCA in various constituencies and wards are all our candidates. We will hold negotiations so that we agree on the way forward,” Ruto said.
He spoke on Sunday after attending a church service at PAG Gatina in Kawangware, Nairobi. They were accompanied by Nairobi Governor candidate Johnson Sakaja.
Speaker Justin Muturi, MPs Moses Kuria, Simon Mbugua, Alice Wahome, Nixon Korir, a host of MCAs and aspirants were also present.
The DP said those candidates that will sacrifice their ambition will be accommodated in government should Kenya Kwanza win the August 9 election.
Mudavadi said there will be no fallout in the coalition because of the many candidates.
“We are one family. For President there is no debate, for governor we support Sakaja and there is no debate,” Mudavadi said.
He revealed that other than in the Dagoreti North MP race where there’s only one coalition candidate, all the other seats have attracted multiple hopefuls.
“For MP for Dagoretti North there is no debate. But for MCAs where we have many candidates in UDA and ANC, let’s agree on how to deal with it,” Mudavadi said.
The consensus must, however, come before the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission prints ballot papers for the polls.
