BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,12TH OCT 2017-  A Senate Committee   that has been formed to analyse the proposed electoral laws  on Thursday 12th concluded  its public hearing , with the Bills expected to be approved by the  Jubilee  members of parliament.

 The Committee Chair Fatuma Dullo however explained why the Senate had to convene to receive input from the members of the public yet a joint parliamentary committee had previously gone through the same exercise at County Hall.

“Procedurally for the Senate this is a new Bill because the amendments have been incorporated and we are supposed to follow the procedure and open it to the public to see if there are more views,” said Dullo.

Isiolo Senator said they had received plenty of written submissions which will aid the committee in preparing a report which will be tabled in the House Thursday afternoon.

“We have spoken to several institutions and most of them submitted their written memorandums. We have gathered enough views and this afternoon we will be tabling a report in the House on the same,” said Dullo.
