Garissa township constituency member of the national assembly Hon Aden Duale has come out to claim that the Azimio la umoja One Kenya coalition party does not have any members of the national assembly.
In a series of tweets on his social media account, Aden Duale disclosed that Azimio is a registered coalition party and as such, it was eligible to field members of the national assembly candidates in the just concluded general elections but chose to only field a candidate for the country's presidency.
According to Duale, the Raila Odinga led party does not qualify to receive funding under the coalition party rules as it has no elected Members of the national assembly, members of parliament (both senate and national assembly), governors etc.
"Azimio La Umoja OKA political party is registered as a political party under section 7(7 )of PPA 2011 and it was issued with a certificate of full registration. It was, therefore, eligible to field candidates in all elective positions but only fielded for presidential. Azimio La Umoja OKA Political Party, therefore, has no elected members in Parliament," he said.
