“There are signs of a definite white smoke,” CORD suspend anti-IEBC protests

The announcement to suspend anti-protests was made through a statement sent to media houses by Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) management committee co-chair Mr. James Orengo.

According to the statement, significant changes towards IEBC changes had been observed, something that necessitated them to call off the demonstrations as the dialogue team is formed to resolve the stalemate.

“There are signs of a definite white smoke above political scene in reaching an agreement between CORD and Jubilee in respect of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) issue and the electoral process,” stated Orengo.

“In the circumstances, CORD is suspending until further notice all demonstrations against the IEBC in light of this development.”

“We are looking forward to the establishment of the joint parliamentary select committee with the full weight of the coalitions and the Kenyan people behind it, not later than the week ending Friday 24th June 2016.”

The opposition has in the past held several demonstrations protesting the occupation of office by current chair Isaac Hassan as they demanded that he and his team quits office.
