The National Super Alliance has said no elections will be held on October 17 if their demands are not met.

Addressing journalists on Wednesday, Nasa leaders dismissed reports that they will boycott the repeat presidential elections, saying no polls will held at all if the petition they handed to the electoral body on Tuesday is not addressed.

“Nasa wishes to inform Kenyans that there will be no polls if concerns raised in our petition are not met,” Nasa co-principal and Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula said.

He said they handed to Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) a petition outlining their “bare minimum” requirements for a credible election.

SERVERS

Among the demands by Nasa is the sacking if IEBC CEO Ezra Chiloba, prosecution of some of the commissions senior employees and access to its servers.

“We have read part of the Supreme Court judgment. We have been able to identify culprits and instructed our legal team to institute prosecution against them as DPP is reluctant to prosecute.

“We will not participate in any election that is a ritual to come up with computer generated leaders,” said Mr Wetang’ula on Wednesday.

He also said the opposition will not be part of any House committee as Parliament is illegally constituted.

The opposition addressed journalists after a parliamentary group meeting at Okoa Kenya secretariat on Wednesday. Nasa leader Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetang’ula were present.

Nasa was supposed to present names of representative to the National Assembly House Business Committee.

Names of MPs that will represent Jubilee in the committee submitted and approved by the House in the morning session.
