Muranga Governior Mwangi wa Iria has registered a new political party pundits believe will act as one of the alternative political vehicle for the vote rich Mt Kenya region in 2022.This is seen as a move to control Mt Kenya votes as President Uhuru Kenyatta is set to leave office in 2022.
The Civic Renewal Party (CRP) received its certificate of registration from the Registrar of Political Parties Ann Nderitu Monday, who said that the party is now fully registered and has met all the standard requirements.
“We have officially registered two political parties which have successfully concluded the minimum requirements of having 1,000 members in at least 24 counties and having a functional national governing council that conforms to Article 100 of the Constitution of Kenya.We have vetted its (CRP’s) constitution and we are satisfied that the party meets the requirements which includes having a governing council that is responsive to Article 100 of the constitution and having founding members,” said Ms Nderitu.
CRP’s Secretary Ephantus Githae, who is Governor Wa Iria’s aide, said they plan to complement the work of the Jubilee administration by meeting members of county assemblies across the country to discuss policy formulation and assisting them to legislate laws that are beneficial to Kenyans and by conducting sensitisation meetings with locals on the importance of public participation, especially on the budget making process.
Mr Githae said the party’s national governing council will be meeting in Naivasha by next month to hit the ground running in preparation for the 2022 election.
