Raila Ally Ledama Olekina Speaks on Postponement of The 2022 General Elections

Cotu boss Francis Atwoli a week ago claimed that the 2022 general elections would be postponed if the Building Bridges Initiative does not sail through.

Atwoli who is a strong supporter of the initiative claimed that Kenyan worker initiated the constitutional reforms after the 2017 general elections, and would not hesitate to push the polls if there is no BBI.

This attracted backlash from a section of political leaders and Kenyans online at large.

In an interview with Citizen TV on Monday, Narok Senator Ledama Olekina who is a strong all of the former prime minister Raila Odinga dismissed Atwoli's point of view calling that there was no law in the constitution that provides postponement of the elections.

"The constitution is clear on elections which is on the second Tuesday of the 5th year. Unless we amend the constitution it will be very difficult now in terms of the timelines, there is no way we can do it legally. The elections can be postponed only in case of an emergency. I look forward for the elections so that people can enjoy the fruits of independence," said Olekina.
