Jubilee Party to field candidate in Kibra by-election
The Jubilee Party has announced it will field a candidate for the Kibra Constituency by-election set to be held on November 7, 2019.
In a statement issued on Monday, Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju said the party had resolved to take part in the Kibra by-election “following consultations within the party leadership.”
“Following consultations within the party leadership with respect to Kibra Constituency, we would like to communicate to our membership that the Jubilee Party will be fielding a candidate in the forthcoming Kibra Constituency by-election,” said Tuju.
“Our analysis and consultations confirm that our Jubilee Party is competitive enough inthe forthcoming political contest.”
Candidates wishing to vie for the seat on the Jubilee ticket have been asked to forward their applications to the National Elections Board.
The Kibra parliamentary seat fell vacant following the death of Ken Okoth who succumbed to Cancer.
The seat, held by the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), has since attracted overwhelming interest with at least 26 aspirants expected to battle for the ODM ticket.
