Raila will campaign to have Esther Passaris elected for Embakasi seat,

Posted by African Press International on May 20, 2008

Publisher: Korir,

Raila wanted her as mayor for Nairobi. She was not elected or nominated councillor. Therefore she got no Mayoral seat. Now the chance for Raila to have her on board may be around the corner.

We will not be surprised if elected that she will get Assistant minister position created for her and posted to the Prime Minister’s office.

We are yet to see wonders in this accommodative Coalition government that seeks to please politicians by positioning them even without duties but enabling them to earn big salaries.

The party also released the names of the parliamentary candidates that will be vying for the vacant parliamentary seats in three constituencies.

The nominations have been slotted for the 23rd of this month.

Speaking at the party headquarters, medical services minister Prof Ayang Nyong said the party would not offer any direct nominations assuring that the process would be a fair battle.

Also released were the names of the 10 ODM candidates interested in the Emuhaya, Ainamoi and Embakasi, seat.

Battle for the Embakasi seat on an ODM ticket is heating up with Esther Passaris, Mohammed Surma and Julius Were, a brother to the late former area MP, eyeing the orange ticket.

The party which previously has raised issues over ECK’s integrity and capability in manning the elections, expressed optimism in a fair and a just by-election process.

They further revealed that they had selected a sample of ballot boxes that will be used in the election process to ensure transparency.

The party will also be dispatching its executive officers to oversee the nominations at the respective constituencies by Tuesday.
