NASA

NASANational Super Alliance (NASA) Members of Parliament will on Tuesday boycott the contentious Election Amendment laws debate in the National Assembly.

Suba North MP and leader of Minority has said that their legislators in both houses of Parliament will stay away from the proceedings as the ‘process is flawed.’

“Our members have been de-whipped from the NA and Senate on any sitting discussing the election amendments,” Mbadi said.

The bill will be tabled in the house in the Afternoon after going through public participation for a week.

Jubilee also dropped clauses that sought to allow ‘non-lawyers’ chair the IEBC, delegate the chair’s roles to other commissioners or his deputy.

The ruling party allegedly plans on passing the bill, latest Wednesday and have it signed into law by President Uhuru Kenyatta before the end of the week.

The opposition has said the amendments are extreme in nature and should be shelved until after the October 26 repeat polls.

NASA is holding demonstrations to protest against the amendments that leader of Majority in the National Assembly, Aden Duale says are noble.
