The party revealed that it upholds democracy adding that it allows its members to have divergent views as they work on having a mutual ground.

“As a party, we wish to assure our members, supporters and the general public that our legislators are only differing on substance but have a common agreement that they will all pass the Bill on the voting day.  Kenyans should not look at the differences in the opinion as a split in the party but as a demonstration of maturity in a democratic space,” read the statement in part.
