The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) chief Raila Odinga and co-principal Moses Wetangula met on Wednesday, January 4, at the latter’s Karen home.
The Cord co-principals are said to have met privately in a meeting that excluded Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka who was said to be busy elsewhere.
According to reports, the talk revolved around the issues of contentious electoral laws and the forthcoming General election that is just seven months away.
“The two leaders talked on a wider range of issues among them the Senate proceedings on the electoral laws(Amendment) Bill passed by the National Assembly. They agreed that only the electronic system will ensure transparency,” an unidentified source was quoted by the Star.
Later today (Wednesday), the Senate, where Wetangula is the leader of the minority, will hold a special sitting to cast a vote on the Jubilee-sponsored bill that seeks to to furnish IEBC with powers to use manual backups for identification of voters and transmission of election results in cases where the electronic system fails.
The Opposition however claim the manual backup system is part of a wider scheme by the Jubilee government to steal the August election.
