Jubilee primaries will go on as scheduled, insists Tuju

The Jubilee Party National Elections Board has dismissed claims that the ongoing party primaries have been stopped in some areas due to shortage of ballot papers.

The board chairman Raphael Tuju said the exercise that started Friday morning has not been postponed in any county.

He said ballot papers dispatched to polling stations are enough and should need arise, more will be delivered before the end of the exercise.

“Turn out in all primaries have never exceeded 35-40 percent,” Mr Tuju said.

“The ballot papers distributed to all counties cover more than 50 per cent of the registered party membership.”

He said there is no cause for alarm as the party has put eight choppers on standby to respond to any arising emergencies.
