Nandi: Former County Assembly Speaker Now Alleges Azimio Is The Majority By Law In National Assembly

Former Nandi County Assembly Speaker Joshua Kiptoo has now alleged that the Azimio La Umoja coalition was the majority political faction by law in the National Assembly.

Speaking at TV 47 Kenya Live show on Monday night, Kiptoo argued that although the ruling alliance, Kenya Kwanza was the majority by fact (defacto), its opposition counterpart was majority by law (de jure). Link:

"Kenya Kwanza has the majority in the National Assembly, de facto but Azimio makes the majority de jure," Joshua Kiptoo.

This follows as the debate on which alliance was the majority political side of divide does rounds in public.

According to Azimio La Umoja coalition, the opposition has the numbers and forms the majority. Nevertheless, the ruling alliance, Kenya Kwanza argues that it has more numbers than its rival. Also, in Kenya Kwanza's observation, Azimio La Umoja was a coalition political party and not a coalition of political parties, and therefore, it has no single elected Member of Parliament.

Kenya Kwanza is made up of a number of parties. Some of them formed the outfit in the run up to August 2022 elections and they include: United Democratic Alliance (UDA), Amani National Congress (ANC) and FORD-Kenya. Parties that joined the trio to sign a pre-elction are Chama Cha Kazi (CCK), Democratic Party (DP), Maendeleo Chap Chap !MCC), The Service Party (TSP), Pamoja African Alliance (PAA) and Kenya Farmers Party.

However, some parties have ditched Azimio La Umoja and joined Kenya Kwanza after the general election and they are; United Democratic Movement (UDM) and Devolution Empowerment Party (DEP).
