The National Alliance yesterday said it will not use schools for its nomination exercise scheduled for Thursday.
TNA's secretary general Onyango Oloo said the party will use churches, mosques, chief camps, market places and other available public places but not learning institutions.
The party had initially asked the education ministry to consider having schools closed on January 17 so that the facilities can be used for the party primaries.
ODM had also made the same request but the ministry has been reluctant to heed to the request. Oloo also announced that the party has put in place a national dispute resolution tribunal and also one tribunal in each of the 47 counties.
He warned that any aspirant who will engage in violence or bribery will be disqualified. Oloo also assured the aspirants and their supporters that the nominations would be free and fair.
"I want to assure our members that the Thursday nominations will be free and fair. We have put in place a mechanism led by competent and credible people," said Oloo at the party's headquarters along Jogoo road in Nairobi.
