Kenya Kwanza, Azimio retreat to put together the 13th Parliament leadership
The Kenya Kwanza Alliance and Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Collision Party have retreated to Naivasha and Athi River respectively. This comes after the first session, of the 13th Parliament was held last week on Tuesday where both houses; Senate and National Assembly, were sworn in.
Focus now shifts to the House leadership as well as the constitution of the various committees. The two camps have laid claim to having a majority in parliament although legally according to the Political Parties Act the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Collision party has an upper hand.
However, the ruling Kenya Kwanza Alliance has gone ahead to lure members of the Azimio affiliated parties into its corner as well as some independents. The early tell-tale signs of this poaching were the rallying of Moses Wetangula to the Speakership of the National Assembly.
Three names have propped up under the Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition to be majority-leader – ODM Chairman and Nominated MP John Mbadi, Suna East MP Junet Mohammed as well as Ugunja MP Opiyo Wandayi.
The Kenya Kwanza is expected to name Kikuyu Constituency MP Kimani Ichung’wah as the Majority Leader if the coalition wins the argument of being the majority.
Other powerful positions up for grabs are the powerful Parliamentary Service Commission, the public investments committee of which the new standing orders indicate has been split into three that is Governance and Education, Commercial Affairs and Energy, then lastly social services administration and Agriculture meaning they will have three chairpersons in addition to that of the Public Accounts Committee.
