ODM leader Raila Odinga will battle for the party’s presidential ticket with the Mombasa County Governor Ali Hasan Joho and his Kakamega counterpart Wycliffe Oparanya.
The Party's deadline day for submitting the necessary papers was scheduled for 31st March 2022. The candidates are the only ones to submit their papers before the deadline. They will have to undergo vetting as per the party's constitution on nomination rules. The party's National Election Board will then communicate the outcome to the public.
There were claims Raila Odinga would not run for President in 2022, though it's now official he'll be on the race.
The Party had pushed the deadline in a move to get more applications, but it was Raila, who made the late submission. Raila will be on the ballot for the fifth time should he be chodes as the party's flag bearer. Both Governors are serving their last terms and would love to try their luck for the top job.
