Gideon Moi’s KANU party has opposed the formula use by the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya alliance to select nominees in the EALA race.
The party says it will challenge the process.
Party’s secretary general Nick Salat says KANU will be reconsidering its position in the alliance citing alleged unfair treatment being accorded to member parties.
Salat says KANU is entitled to a slot on the regional assembly in the spirit of fairness.
“When there is a prize to be shared among the family members, for goodness’ sake, there ought to be fairness but what we have witnessed here is nothing but greed among some individuals,” he said.

KANU was hoping to get one EALA slot, out of goodwill, from the four which the Coalition is entitled to.
In the formula, ODM gets with two positions while Jubilee and Wiper each getting a single slot.
Salat says he wrote to the ODM party seeking to have one slot reserved for the party, it went ahead to disregard it.
The former legislator says they are weighing available legal options to challenge the process ahead of the voting set for next week.
“If they don’t want us anymore in the coalition then they should tell us and we shall look for other options. This is not how to keep members together,” he said.
“This is totally unacceptable, how come a few parties were invited to apply for the positions leaving others out.”
