NASA PRESS STATEMENT
NOVEMBER 7, 2017:
MOTION FOR COUNTY ASSEMBLIES ON CREATION OF PEOPLE’S ASSEMBLY IN KENYA:
Last week, we announced that NASA and all its supporters do not recognize the exercise conducted on October 26th 2017 as an election under the Constitution of Kenya.
We equally do not recognize the declaration of Uhuru Kenyatta as President-elect as a constitutional pronouncement capable of constituting him as a legitimate President of the Republic of Kenya.
The refusal by IEBC and the Jubilee Party to allow the people of Kenya to lend their sovereignty to a properly elected president through free, fair and credible elections does not however leave the people of Kenya with no options.
As we have said before, as a people, we are not powerless against a government that has closed its ears to reason and logic.
Our constitution had foreseen such circumstances like the ones we are in and provided that the people of Kenya have a right to exercise their sovereignty directly or through elected representatives.
As the people of Kenya are now unable to exercise their sovereignty through properly elected representatives following the sham elections of August 8th and 26th October, we have resolved to exercise sovereignty directly.
Beginning this week therefore, the county assemblies of the Republic of Kenya shall be presented with a Motion to create a People’s Assembly through which the people of Kenya shall henceforth exercise their sovereignty up to and until the holding of proper elections in this country.
As we have explained in recent days, the People’s Assembly will comprise Governors and Deputy Governors; members of the Senate, National Assembly and County Assembly; religious, trade union and civil society leaders; and representatives of youth and women organizations.
It is to constitute a convention to be held in Nairobi to discuss and determine the pathway to democracy and constitutionalism and to restore legality and the rule of law.
The convention shall make decisions and recommendations to achieve democracy, constitutionalism and to restore legality and will form any bodies or organize other platforms for purposes of attaining its declared objectives. We are sharing a copy of the Motion which is also being sent to the counties beginning this afternoon.
