ODM Postpones Party Primaries In Nakuru

The National Elections Board of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has postponed party primaries in Nakuru County. The elections, which were supposed to take place today, were postponed due to the threat of violence.

They were scheduled to take place in the constituencies of Nakuru West and Nakuru East, as well as the wards of Kaptembwa, Kivumbini, Shabaab, and Olkaria.

The planned primaries have been called off, according to ODM Nakuru branch chairman Bernard Miruka, to allow for more consultations before a new date is set.

"True, the ODM primaries scheduled for today have been postponed indefinitely to allow for more consultations. Before the primaries, there were a number of issues that needed to be addressed, including logistics "Mr Miruka stated."We'll announce a new date later."

However, a source close to the planned nominations told Nation.Africa that the party decided to postpone the primaries due to the threat of violence.

"The primaries were postponed due to fears of violence erupting as a result of disagreements on various issues. Concerns were raised, for example, about the selection of clerks and presiding officers. Some people wanted the clerks and presiding officers to be chosen by Nakuru officials "according to the source.
