National: Lawyer Omari Gives Take on Minority Political Side In The National Assembly

Renown lawyer Danstan Omari has now cleared the air reveals the minority political side in the National Assembly.

According to Danstan who appeared on K24 TV Live interview on Monday morning, the former prime minister Raila Odinga-led Azimio La Umoja was the minority in the House. He quipped that the number of Members of Parliament attested to that fact. Link:

Further, the respected Advocate of the High Court of Kenya, who once predicted the fall of Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) bill wondered why Raila's team had not bothered to legally thwart the move by United Democratic Movement (UDM) from Azimio La Umoja to United Democratic Alliance (UDA).

Danstan Omari: As it is now, Azimio is the minority in terms of actual numbers. I don't know why Azimio has never gone to challenge the movement of UDM and other people from Azimio to Kenya Kwanza.

This follows after a contentious debate between the ruling coalition Kenya Kwanza and Azimio La Umoja movement ensued on a political factions that formed majority and minority in the National Assembly. On one hand, the Azimio La Umoja averred that it was legally majority since it signed coalition agreement with many parties including those that had decamped to Kenya Kwanza.

However, on the other hand, Kenya Kwanza team contends that it was the majority coalition in the National Assembly. It asserted that its constituent parties had MPs who outnumbered their Azimio La Umoja counterparts. Also, the coalition noted that Azimio La Umoja was not a coalition but a party and had no single elected legislator.
