According to the Star, the residents were suggesting a pre-election pact similar to that between President Mwai Kibaki, Raila and other leaders in the National Rainbow Coalition in 2002.
Raila  in that arrangement with Kibaki was to be given the position of executive Prime Minister with the constitution being changed.

Raila and Mudavadi had a bitter fallout before the 2013 election with the former Sabatia MP nearly joining the Jubilee alliance before forming his own coalition named Amani.
Raila after failing to lure back Mudavadi teamed up with Ford-Kenya leader Moses Wetangula to cement Luhya votes for the 2013 election.
Mudavadi became a distant third behind front runners Uhuru and Raila.
