Jubilee Party officially registered, Lucy Ndung’u confirms

President Uhuru Kenyatta’s new re-election vehicle Jubilee Party has formally been registered after meeting all requirements, after the merger of 11 political parties at Kasarani.

This is according to the Registrar of Political Parties Lucy Ndung’u, who confirmed receiving all documents relating to the merger saying she is satisfied they meet requirements of the Political Parties Act.

Ndung’u, in an exclusive interview, also said President Uhuru Kenyatta and DP William Ruto will decide whether officials from Jubilee Party’s predecessor Jubilee Alliance Party will act as new officials.

The registrar further indicated that she has seven days legally to look into all documents submitted by parties that have dissolved into Jubilee Party to establish if they meet legal requirements.

“We have to read in detail to establish whether the 13 political parties adhered to the law when they decided to merge, the document will be made public after expiry of the seven days,” Ndung’u asserted.

The party’s NDC supported and declared Uhuru and Ruto as the interim party leader and deputy party leader consecutively.
