Prime Minister Raila Odinga has announced that the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) plans to hold a joint rally at the Uhuru Park where a major political statement will be made public.
He said the CORD alliance which brings the ODM, FORD Kenya and the Wiper among other parties will make a major announcement at the rally slated for the 22 nd of December.

Odinga made the announcement at a press briefing at his office shortly after a meeting with leaders affiliated to the coalition.

The one hour meeting brought CORD luminaries including the Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka and FORD Kenya chairman Moses Watengula.

The Premier however said the alliance was concerned about the low voter apathy at the registration centres and urged Kenyans to take the exercise seriously.

He said the President may soon assent to the amendment to the election laws to allow holders of the National Identity Cards waiting cards enlist as voters.

“You should not bank on a possible extension of the registration period but enlist as voters before the expiry of the exercise on the 19 th of this month” Odinga cautioned.
Members of the cabinet present included Sally Kosgey, James Orengo, Dalmas Otieno Musa Sirma, Ababu Namwamba and MPs John Mbadi, Charles Kilonzo, Philip Kaloki.
