In what could spell the beginning of a new political realignment, National Assembly Majority Leader Aden Duale broken ranks with Deputy President William Ruto over the raging debate of referendum that could see the country adopt a pure parliamentary system of government and declared support for Raila Odinga.

The Garissa township MP who is a key pillar in the Jubilee government made the revelations in the backdrop of a heated political contest pitting DP Ruto against Raila Odinga with the DP taking to Twitter in a series of outbursts.

In an interview with Sunday Standard, Duale stated that the presidential system and the hybrid system adopted since independence had largely favored the Mt Kenya region over other parts of the country, resulting in ethnic political polarisation.
