âWe donât want any stakeholders' meetings...we are just waiting for the elections. We don't have problem with whoever will print the ballot papers, we just want the ballot papers printed...they can agree on the returning officers they want,â he s aid.
The Deputy President also moved to assure the leaders that the party will ensure there is no conflict in selection of agents, who will represent Jubilee in the elections.
âThere was a problem with our agents and there was a big conflict among your leaders but now we have decided the issue of election agents should be decided here (coast) not Nairobi,â he said.
Coastal leaders present at the meeting included governors Fahim Twaha (Lamu), Salim Mvurya (Kwale) and Lunga Lunga MP Khatib Mwashetani.
Others were Cabinet secretaries Najib Balala (Tourism), Dan Kazungu (Mining) and LDP leader Ababu Namwamba.
