“The incumbents am told have been given direct nomination,” he alleged.

Hassan is seeking Wajir North parliamentary seat currently held by Ibrahim Saney, who recently defected to Jubilee party from ODM alongside Adan Keynan (Eldas) and Mohamed Elmi (Tarbaj).

However, Jubilee Party Secretary General Raphael Tuju has refuted the claims by the politician saying the Wajir county election board elections were postponed due to technical hitches.

In an interview with X news, Tuju said the party had no preferred candidates in any elective seats adding that all candidates will be subjected to a competitive process.

“We postponed the meeting to elect the Wajir County Elections Board till later this week. The aspirants should get in touch with their county coordinator” he said.
