Do not expect to discuss electoral reforms with Uhuru – Aden Duale tells Raila

National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale has clarified Jubilee Party is not interested in talking about electoral justice and reforms even as President Uhuru Kenyatta opens doors for dialogue with opposition leaders.

Jubilee will not support any move to change Kenya’s governance structure from presidential to parliamentary system as had been suggested by a section of MPs and other local leaders.

“We are not going to talk about electoral justice, that should be very clear. We will also not talk about changing the governance structure. That will involve a referendum. We don’t want to put the country into an election mood as Jubilee,” Duale disclosed in an with NTV on Wednesday, March 21.

He reiterated Jubilee will only agree to dialogue on unity and development.

His statement now puts the handshake between Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga in limbo. It is understood Raila Odinga obliged to the meeting in the trust that the issues that gave birth to the NRM movement would be addressed.

These issues stemmed from electoral justice to other serious issues like corruption in Jubilee, historical injustices and others like the TJRC report.

Jubilee now after getting the handshake and toning down the country’s mood has backtracked and will not address electoral justice especially in the wake of revelations that Jubilee used Cambridge Analytica to hijack the electoral process by psychological manipulation of voters.
