BY EURIDICE NZIOKA,NAIROBI,13TH SEPT 2017-The Opposition has resolved to snub parliament and will not take part in the formation of the critical house committees.In a joint parliamentary group meeting chaired by the National Super Alliance NASA principals on Wednesday at the Okoa Kenya offices in Nairobi,NASA claims that the bicameral parliament as currently constituted is illegal and they therefore can not take part in any of their activities.
The National Assembly needs a quorum of 50 to conduct any business while the Senate is required to have 15 Senators at any sitting.
There resolve comes even as the national assembly settled on several Jubilee members of parliament to sit in the crucial house committees.
Those agreed upon by the jubilee team are MPs Shadrack Mose (Kitutu Mose), Amos Kimunya (Kipipiri),Meru Woman Rep Kawira Mwangaza and her Turkana counterpart Joyce Emanikor to be members of the committee.
NASA move now throws parliament in a state of uncertainty even as it prepares to start the 2017-2020 session considering the fact for business in both houses to be conducted there must be established committees on various issues to guide legislation.
