Amani National Congress has endorsed party leader Musalia Mudavadi to be its flag bearer in the 2022 General Election.

The agreement was sealed on Tuesday by the party National Governing Council at the party headquarters in Nairobi.

The council also passed resolutions that will seek to strengthen the party ahead of the election.

Speaking during the endorsement, ANC secretary general Barrack Muluka said that the council met in accordance with the Registrar of Political Parties.

"One of the most critical resolutions of this meeting was the endorsement of Musalia Mudavadi as ANC's flag-bearer for the year 2022," Muluka said.

Mudavadi’s party cleared him amid political division in Western region where he has been sidelined together with Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang'ula.

The ANC leader had earlier disputed claims purporting that he will form an alliance with Deputy President William Ruto.

Mudavadi has heightened political activities to court new allies ahead of the 2022 polls but political analysts say his camp remains undecided.

Mudavadi has previously said he will be on the ballot.

“I just want to reassure you, my people, that I'm in the field, we shall fight with my competitors up to the year 2022. I will be there, God willing. I'll be in the field in 2022 and there are no two ways about it,” Musalia said.

 
 

In 2017, Mudavadi backed ODM leader Raila Odinga under the National Super Alliance (NASA) for the top seat.

Mudavadi and Wetang'ula had staged meetings in Western, but they later cancelled them as coronavirus cases continues to increase.

The ANC leader had also asked the president to ban all the political gatherings across the country which he said were putting Kenyans at risk.
