CORD names legislators to steer IEBC talks with Jubilee

The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) has named five legislators to represent it in dialogue over contentious issues including reformation of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC).

The legislators include Siaya Senator James Orengo, his Machakos counterpart Johnson Muthama, Tongaren MP Eseli Simiyu, Suna East MP Junet Mohammed and Mombasa Women Representative Mishi Mboko.

CORD had on Wednesday asked Jubilee to also prepare their list in readiness for talks to discuss the issues ailing the country.

The coalition gave the government until Sunday to begin the dialogue process failure to which it will resume weekly protests which were suspended last week to allow time for dialogue.

Jubilee has insisted that it will not engage CORD in out-of-Parliament discussion on matters of Constitutional importance urging the opposition to forward their grievances to Parliament.

CORD has also named two secretaries; Paul Mwangi and Grace Katasi as joint secretaries in the dialogue team.
