Jubilee leaders from West Pokot County have urged Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) not to adhere to pressure from Nasa concerning August polls.
The leaders said the opposition has sensed defeat and that is why they want election dates to be postponed.
The leaders led by West Pokot Governor Simon Kachapin and Pokot South MP David Pkossing said that the opposition is not ready for August polls and should stop critising IEBC of not being prepared to carry out the elections.
“They went to court to bar the commission from procuring election materials and also they barred the commission from conducting audit of voters’ register. The opposition has a hidden agenda concerning the elections and they should come out and tell Kenyans,” said Pkossing.
Pokot South legislature said Nasa is not ready for elections since they have not selected their preferred presidential candidate and running mate.
He asked the opposition to give IEBC enough time to carry out its duties and ensure the coming polls are conducted on the stipulated date.
