The Coalition for Reforms and Democracy is a coalition of multiple political parties, built around the triumvirate of Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka, and Moses Wetangula, to contest the Kenya general elections of 2013. The members of the coalition are Orange Democratic Movement, Wiper Democratic Movement, Amani National Congress, FORD-Kenya, Kenya Social Congress, KADU–Asili, Peoples Democratic Party, Mkenya Solidarity Movement, Chama Cha Uzalendo, Muungano Development Movement Party of Kenya, United Democratic Movement, Chama Cha Mwananchi, Federal Party of Kenya[1][2] Following the hotly contested elections that saw Jubilee alliance win, Cord filed a petition contesting the results. The Supreme Court rejected Cord's petition and declared Kenyatta the president-elect.

The Coalition of Reforms and Democracy is currently the official opposition party in Kenya. It has a wide support in Kenya with roughly 50% of the Electorate in Kenya.

The coalition will be dissolved after the current session of parliament as part of the creation of the National Super Alliance.[3]
