Speaker Wetangula Issues A New Directive On Ruto's Constitutional Amendments

National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula has now directed three House Committees to follow up on the proposed changes of the constitution by President William Ruto.

In a statement via The Standard on Twitter, the Speaker directed the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee (JLAC) to look into the proposed amendments of the creation of the Office of Opposition Leader and implementation of the two thirds gender rule.

"The Departmental Committee on Justice & Legal Affairs to consider the Message of H.E The President with respect to the implementation of the Two-Thirds Gender Rule; and the establishment of the Office of the Leader of Official Opposition," read the statement.

This came after President William Ruto wrote to the two houses (National Assembly and Senate) seeking to amend the constitution so as to create an office of the Opposition Leader as well as his/her deputy.

He also wants the 13ty Parliament to establish a formula that will guide the computation of the gender ratio in the National Assembly.
