But Mr Maliba said the party had submitted other symbols for approval.

“We had submitted other symbols including the image of a flamingo but for reasons beyond our knowledge, the registrar is not keen on us having a bird as a symbol even though other parties have birds as symbols,” said Mr Maliba in a statement on Monday.

PARTY COLOURS

The defunct TNA's symbol was a dove, while the new party's symbol is an eagle.

The new party's colours are red and blue.

Among the documents submitted for registration by the party’s interim officials - Mr Maliba and Wachira Keen (chairman) – were its constitution, code of conduct and a logo.

According to Ms Nderitu, registering a party is a process and could take at least six months.

The process involves a lot of correspondence and submission of requisite documents.
