The ODM leader went on to say that he is not obligated to compete for the presidency and that he can only back a candidate who has a high chance of winning.

The former Prime Minister also revealed that he is consulting Kenyans on whether or not to run for the top seat so as to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta.
