Speaker of the National Assembly Moses Masika Wetang’ula will this afternoon give a ruling on which coalition party will be the Majority and minority side in the 13th Parliament after debating the president’s speech
Members of both Kenya Kwanza and Azimio La Umoja One Kenya coalition are all claiming to be the majority side
In a heated debate, yesterday, the members of parliament from both Azimio argued that they are the majority as all the 26 political parties that formed Azimio is still intact in the coalition.
Suna East Member of Parliament Junet Mohamed tabled the Azimio coalition agreement however the speaker dismissed the document
“I have gone through the document tabled by the Junet and found out that it is not admissible by the fact that it is not properly done. The document has some missing pages, deletions, and no numbering,” Wetang’ula.
On September 7, 2022, the Registrar of Political Parties wrote to the National Assembly clarifying the status of each party in the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya coalition party and the Kenya Kwanza alliance
The Registrar pointed out that Dr. Alfred Mutua’s Maendeleo Chap Chap (MCC) and Amason Kingi’s Pamoja African Alliance (PAA) are not recognized members of the Kenya Kwanza alliance and are still listed as Azimio coalition party members despite decamping before the August 9th polls.
Article 108 of the Constitution establishes the office of the Majority and Minority Leader. The Majority Leader is the leader in the National Assembly of the largest party or coalition of parties, while the leader of the minority will be the leader of the second largest party or coalition of parties.
