National Super Alliance (NASA) on Tuesday launched its manifesto a day after the ruling party, Jubilee launched theirs.

In what seemed like a political rally, NASA highlighted some of its pledges on food, corruption and jobs.

It has been said that all the NASA leaders did was take some of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and stamped their logo onto them.

One of the issues highlighted in the manifesto was the possible abolishment of Elections by the people.

According to Raila Odinga, National Unity in Kenya will only be realised when Kenyans stop voting based on their ethnicity.

He said that his new government would come up with a new system of governance that would be fair to all. This will ensure that presidency in Kenya does not go to the largest communities in Kenya; case in point, the tyranny of numbers in 2013.

In the first 100 days of office, NASA will sponsor a constitutional amendment that will allows for the implementation of the Bomas draft. While the new model of getting a president has not been revealed, it will not be based on a popularity vote as happens in the United States.

“A hybrid parliamentary system based on the Bomas draft will not only allow individuals from smaller communities to rise to the highest office in the land but also encourage an inclusive system of power sharing,” part of the manifesto reads.

In addition to taking away power from the people, the coalition will create positions of prime minster and two deputy prime ministers who shall be nominated by the Prime Minister.
