BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,11TH SEPT 2017-The national Super Alliance NASA now says its members of parliament will not attend the official opening of the 12th parliament scheduled for Tuesday. NASA leaders says  president Uhuru Kenyatta who will be presiding over the event does not meet the constitutional threshold to convene such  sittings .According to NASA principal Moses Wetangula president Kenyatta enjoys temporary power of incumbency owing to the decision  by the supreme court to annul his win on September 1st,2017. Wetangula who was addressing the press at the NASA  leader Raila Odinga’s Office at the capital Hill say the president is supposed to have waited until the second round of presidential poll slated for   October 17th is held and concluded saying that is only then that he can convene parliament when he is dully elected and sworn into office. On the rejoinder president Uhuru Kenyatta addressing Ukambani Jubilee leaders who visited him at state house Nairobi on Monday said the event will still proceed with or without NASA .
