There is NOTHING WRONG with a political party having its own parallel tallying centre, and these Jubilee politicians KNOW that Jubilee will itself have one; why then would they be opposed to NASA having one? It doesn't make sense..unless the dunderhead journalists are quoting them selectively....because there is EVERYTHING WRONG in having a parallel tallying centre and then declaring your own results BEFORE the IEBC does so.
NASA claims they will have ALL the results within 7 hours, but the law allows IEBC 7 days within which it must declare ALL the results. That means IEBC can legally take its time and declare/announce presidential results at anytime within those 7 days. WHY is NASA then in a hurry to declare their figures in 7 hours? It looks like they are trying to second guess and subversively usurp IEBC's mandate to declare presidential results. That is what concerns a lot of people.

Where and when did Jubilee ever oppose NASA having a parallel vote tallying centre so that the party can eat some phantom humble pie? Jubilee has declared severally that there is nothing wrong with having a parallel tallying 'senda', more so considering Jubilee intend to have one too, just as they did in 2013!
Okay I won't quote the Standard. But read here from the Govt official station:
Here is the Nation report of the same ... No contradictionJubilee against VAGA's plan go have ITV own tallying centre - KBC
Jubilee party has criticized the opposition’s plan to set up a parallel tallying centre during the August 8 polls. Jubilee party officials say that IEBC is the only constitutional body mandated by the Constitution to run the elections. Speaking during a political rally in Malindi, Water Cabinet Secretary, Eugene Wamalwa faulted NASA co-principal Kalonzo Musyoka for saying that the opposition coalition will run a parallel tallying centre. Speaking at the rally, National Assembly majority leader Aden Duale claimed the company single sourced by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission to offer the integrated election management system has some connection with ODM leader Raila Odinga.
5-inch nose wide Eunice even claims NASA had a parallel tallying centre in 2007... Phew maajabu haya!Jubilee Party leaders on Sunday returned to the Coast region where they rejected the National Super Alliance's (Nasa) plan to set up a parallel tallying centre for presidential vote in the August 8 General Election.
The leaders who included Cabinet secretaries Mwangi Kiunjuri (Devolution), Eugene Wamalwa (Water), Dan Kazungu (Mining), National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale and former Constitution Implementation Commission chairman Charles Nyachae, cautioned their colleagues against this, saying the decision is unconstitutional and would not augur well for the country’s peace.
Mr Wamalwa said the Constitution only mandates the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission with the responsibility of monitoring .....
“I want to tell Nasa to follow the law,” said Mr Wamalwa at a rally in Kilifi County.
According to the Water CS, the setting up of parallel tallying centres in 2007 elections was what caused the post-election violence where more than 1,000 people died and thousands displaced.
