No talks within Parliament, says CORD

By George Kithuka

The opposition says it will not be party to any talks within parliament.

CORD leader Raila Odinga says the opposition will resume protests if the Jubilee coalition fails to accede to dialogue not dictated by tyranny of numbers.

Raila who was in Nyamira said his team is open to talks but will not accept to be boxed to the corner.

This comes a day after Jubilee named an 11 members team of parliamentarians to dialogue over IEBC.

Speaking while on tour of Nyamira, Raila threatened to resume street protest on Monday next week unless Jubilee agrees to dialogue outside parliament

Indeed the opposition party has written to Nairobi County Commander notifying him of panned demonstrations on Monday 13th June and Thursday 16th June 2016.

The letter read, in part, “we hereby notify you of the above peaceful demonstrations on Monday 13th June 2016 and Thursday 16th June 2016 to express displeasure and call for the overhaul of IEBC ahead of the next election” end of quote.

The notification goes on to say the opposition will provide marshals that will guide the protesters to ensure everything runs smooth.

Raila said there was still a window of opportunity if the Jubilee agrees to a 4 member subcommittee to draw a roadmap for the talks.

NARC Kenya was too reading the same script saying talks touching on IEBC reforms must be held outside parliament to enable all stakeholders give an input.
