Gatundu Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has said he is not against the Building Bridges Initiative as its proposals are good.
However, the legislator has put it his only reservation on the document is the double-decker Parliament which will the number of MPs increased by 180 to solve the two-thirds gender Rule.
He is planning to table a proposal to the speaker of the National Assembly today afternoon giving his proposals on how to solve the gender equality nightmare without flooding the parliament.
"This afternoon I will be presenting a legislative proposal to the Speaker of the National Assembly for an acceptable win-win solution for the two-thirds gender rule. I will be proposing that we retain the 47 women reps in the National Assembly, 47 women reps in the Senate and 3 women MPs in the National Assembly to represent the youth and persons with disability. This will ensure that even before polls open women will have 19% automatic representation. I will be proposing that further improvements be achieved through empowerment programmes by political parties. By so doing I will be helping the country avoid nominating 180 women as suggested by the BBI bill. I call upon women leadership and the BBI proponents assist to fast track the proposal and approach it in a bipartisan manner to save the country a looming catastrophe. For your information, I have no other problem with the BBI except Double Decker Parliament." Gatundu Mp, Moses Kuria.
Kuria says if a criterion is agreed on to come up with solutions to this sensitive issue then the other proposal in the document is good and he is not opposing any other.
