ODM Party has indicated it will do away with ‘quantity’ and go for ‘quality’. The party’s political affairs director Opiyo Wandayi has revealed the Orange Party will vet candidates ahead of 2017.
The Party has the highest number of intellectuals in Kenya.
“ODM has arrived at the decision of vetting contestants one year earlier, and this means that 2017 parliamentary candidates will be awarded certificates based on their intellectual record and ability to debate issues,” said Wandayi.
Wandayi claims the party is keenly following contribution of its members on a host of issues (bills) in parliament and will only be looking at dependable leaders. He claims some of his colleagues do not add quality to the party.
Wandayi’s remarks have however been dismissed as wishful thinking by a number of party legislators.
