Narc Kenya pulls out of PNU elections

Written By:Collins Anampiu

NARC Kenya has issued a stern warning to its members planning to participate in Party of national unity elections slated for September 12 next month, saying they risk expulsion from the party.

Speaking after the party’s National Executive Council meeting at the coast, Narc Kenya chairperson Martha Karua said the party only recognizes PNU as a coalition of corporate members and therefore the planned elections are illegal.

A show down now looms between NARC Kenya and Party of National Unity as NARC Kenya says it does not recognize individual membership of PNU, putting a strain on the already shaky relationship.

Karua said any member taking part in the planned PNU elections will be deemed to have resigned from the party according to the new Political Parties’ Act.

She reiterated that the party would continue strengthening itself ahead of the 2012 general election.

The party officials also endorsed the proposed party constitution and elections which will be held on November 15 this year.
