The Orange Democratic Movement in Scandinavia (ODM-Scandinavia) was set up on Saturday October 14th at Brygghuset in Stockholm. A Program document that has been under circulation among supporters was discussed, amended and ratified at the meeting where an eleven man Interim Committee was also elected to take charge of the Party. The meeting resolved that the Officials would meet as soon as possible to distribute responsibilities among themselves.
The Committee was entrusted with the task of drafting a Constitution for ODM-Scandinavia, registering the Party in Sweden, opening a bank account, recruiting new members and calling a member’s meeting in two weeks to discuss the draft Constitution which will then be used to register the Party in Sweden.
The document that came under discussion calls for the delivery of a new Constitution based on the Bomas draft once ODM-K seizes power, an end to tribalism and nepotism especially in the appointment of public servants, an end to corruption, an end to land grabbing among other demands.
The new Committee was given the mandate to get in touch with ODM-Kenya in Nairobi to update the Office about latest developments in Scandinavia. The meeting agreed that a more comprehensive statement will be released by the Party after the new Committee has met and defined its immediate priorities.
