A row over the Jubilee Party list for members of the county assembly nomination slots has gone up a notch after party officials led by branch chairman David Manyara announced a new list.

Last week, Jubilee nominees led by County Assembly Speaker Susan Kihika submitted the contentious list to the party headquarters.

The list was however dismissed by locals and leaders who were not consulted as it was being crafted, sparking calls for an emergency meeting attended by Jubilee governor nominee Lee Kinyanjui and Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri.

The two differed with the team composed of 10 other parliamentary nominees, woman representatives and the nominee for the Senate seat.

During the meeting also attended by party nomination losers and the MCAs who won, it was resolved that a new list should be drawn.

Speaking to The Standard by phone, Mr Manyara said they had prepared a new list that would be released this week.
