Revealed: ODM Warriors Set To Hold A Crucial Meeting Next Week Over an Important Agenda

The National Executive Council of the ODM party will meet next week to elect a flagbearer for the year 2022.

Raila Odinga, the party's leader, is likely to raise the flag, and the conference may resolve uncertainty about his candidacy by endorsing him.

Raila steered clear of the subject of the party's presidential nominee while visiting Tana River on the second day of his Coast tour.

He stated that he is not in a rush to be named the candidate, but that the party will do everything possible to achieve passage of the Building Bridges Initiative Bill.

The Bill was struck down by the High Court, and the appeals are being heard by a seven-judge Court of Appeal bench.

Ali Hassan Joho, the governor of Mombasa, and Wycliffe Oparanya, the governor of Kakamega, have both submitted forms for candidacy as presidential candidates on the ODM ticket.

In March, the party's deputies submitted candidacy papers to the ODM secretariat.

Coast leaders, backed by Kilifi Senator Stewart Madzayo, have stated that Raila should be chosen as the flagbearer since he is the only one qualified for the position.
