Wiper Party leaders announced on Wednesday that the party will rally behind ODM candidate in the forthcoming Malindi Parliamentary By-election set to be held on 7th March, 2016
Addressing the press the Party Secretary General Hassan Omar said Wiper party will throw its weight behind Willy Baraka Mtengo’s candidature in the Malindi election.
Omar rubbished claims that Jubilee has dominated the Malindi by-election and promised that the party will campaign for the ODM candidate once election campaigns commence officially.
Mr. Baraka Mtengo was named the ODM party flag bearer on Tuesday.
Mtengo will be competing against Jubilee Alliance Party’s candidate Philip Charo.
Meanwhile, the party cautioned Independent Electoral and Boundary Commission IEBC against registering voters on the ward level as opposed to the current polling centers.
Omar said the move will deny many Kenyans a chance to register as voters saying most wards are big and porous for people to access centers easily.
The Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka also attended the meeting.
