We are still out of October 26 election, no matter what

The National Super Alliance (NASA) has maintained that it will not be part of the repeat election on Thursday, October 26 despite calls by the international community to follow the law.

In a statement seen by TUKO.co.ke after NASA met the envoys on Monday, October 23, the opposition said since their demands had apparently been ignored, they will not participate in the election.

NASA said the IEBC is not ready to conduct a repeat election as per the words of its chairman Wafula Chebukati and immediate former commissioner Roselyne Akombe.

"We made it clear that if the electoral commission itself is not confident of conducting credible polls, it follows that the said elections can only be sham elections that NASA shall not be part of. NASA wishes to reaffirm to the country, the international community at large and its supporters in particular that the elections scheduled for 26th do not meet the conditions deduced from the Supreme Court ruling and our subsequent irreducible minimums that we shared both with IEBC and the public," NASA said in a statement signed by Musalia Mudavadi.

The cpalition added that 'three days to the election there is nothing that can change in the electoral infrastructure and its position is final.

"We do not recognize the election scheduled for 26th October and we shall not participate in it because it doesn’t serve the country’s interest," they said.

The envoys also asked President Uhuru Kenyatta not to sign into law amendments to election laws.

They further expressed their concern over Chebukati and Akombe's sentiments, saying no one should infiltrate the IEBC.
