Passaris Tops Race to Retain Woman Rep Seat

141 150

NAIROBI woman representative Esther Passaris is the most preferred candidate for Woman Representative seat. This is according to a poll released on Tuesday by Tifa.

In the battle for the Woman Representative seat, the poll indicates that incumbent Nairobi Woman Rep Esther Passaris of ODM is nearly twice as popular as her nearest rival, Millicent Omanga of UDA with both candidates commanding 32 per cent and 19 per cent respectively.

“…Though interestingly, her (Passaris) lead among men is considerably higher than it is among women (39% vs. 19% among the former compared with just 24% vs. 20% among the latter). Just why this is must be discovered through further qualitative research,” adds the report.

The poll sampled 632 registered voters spread across 17 constituencies in Nairobi and was conducted on June 20.
