The United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party has postponed its grassroots elections that were initially scheduled for December 9th, 2023. The new dates for the elections are April 12th, 19th, and 26th, 2024.
The decision to postpone the elections was made following a meeting of UDA’s National Steering Committee, which was chaired by the party leader, President William Ruto.
In a statement, UDA Secretary-General Cleophas Malala said that the postponement was necessary to allow more time for the party to sensitize and recruit new members.
“We want to ensure that all eligible UDA members have a chance to participate in the elections,” Malala said.
The postponement of the elections comes as UDA gears up for the 2027 general elections. The party is hoping to build on its success in the 2022 elections, in which it won the presidency and a majority of seats in Parliament.
