Speaker Justin Muturi urges political parties to embrace coalitions
National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi says political parties should embrace the coalition agreements approach which he says will lead to stability of the country.
Speaker Muturi took stock of the 2013 coalition government between The National Alliance (TNA) and the United Republican Party (URP) which he says was a formidable government that earned respect as different political parties consulted.
Speaker Muturi also reiterated that he will be on the ballot come August 9, vying for the presidential seat under the Democratic Party (DP).
He drummed up support for his presidential bid saying that he will transform the lives of Kenyans.
He spoke during the opening of a classroom at the Kenya Medical Training Institute in Molo, Nakuru County, on Friday.
“When people work in coalitions, there’s a lot of respect and stability…kwa sababu wewe ni kiongozi wa chama kile, na mwingine ni kiongozi wa chama kile kingine. Politics ni interests, wewe kama kiongozi wa chama hiki unasimamia maslahi ya chama chako…Yule mwingine pia,” he said.
“Kama mnazungumza pamoja, pana heshima kubwa. Vyama vyote viko na haki kwa sababu vimesajiliwa, there’s political right guaranteed under Article 38 of the Constitution.”
