Kenya elections: a second round is possible

Kenyatta Odinga not over 50, other ballots in september?

04-08-2017 by redazione

Elections in Kenya, the possibility of ballots it's serious.
As the fate of August, next Tuesday approaches, public opinion and the media begin seriously considering the possibility that both President Uhuru Kenyatta and the leader of the opposition alliance Raila Odinga will reach the 50% that would give either one the absolute certainty of being able to drive the nation for the next five years.
According to the most credible survey published so far, that of the African Research Center, drawn up after interviews with a sample of 10,000 citizens of each region and social class, the current president would benefit the challenger but both could not reach the quorum .
This is mainly due to the media exposure enjoyed by the other five younger candidates who could even reach the total of eight per cent. In this case, the urns, presumably two days after the vote, would leave the name of the President but only the indication of who would be ahead and then play alliances with the small candidates, who should embrace one or the other, Other political spine, thus directing their voters to one or the other.
Never in Kenya independent candidates have enjoyed so much power.
The "fault" of this unusual goal is the same leaders of the Jubilee and the NASA alliance, who did not appear in public debates organized by televisions, where smaller candidates had the opportunity to present their program and to get acquainted As a series of people and avoided (for now) by the clever play of politics.
Only Odinga, in the last TV debate, chose to attend and in that circumstance would gain some point on the rival.
In any case, according to the polls, Kenyatta would remain favored and the motivation is that during the electoral constituencies he has always been innocent of peace, which would be more than all of Kenyan's heart, while Odinga would be termed too "warrior".
