Azimio-One Kenya should accept the fact that they are not the majority party in the National Assembly as their counterparts in Kenya Kwanza have outnumbered them in all fronts. This tag of war between Azimio and Kenya Kwanza is unnecessary as the majority party is known. Azimio party are a tiger on papers, meaning that lawfully they are the majority party on paper, but when it comes to real numbers on the ground, Kenya Kwanza is the real tiger. Just the way Azimio accepted that they are the minority in Senate is the same way they should accept their fate in the national assembly.
Affiliate parties in Azimio signed a pact whereby a party can leave the coalition three months after the elections, with this in mind, Azimio will still remain the minority party in Parliament and they should give Kenyans some breathing space. What has weakened Azimio is the post election defections by MDG, DEP, PAA, MCC, UDM and Muungano parties to Kenya Kwanza alliance. With the three months almost elapsing, there will be more defections from Azimio to Kenya Kwanza which will weaken Azimio even more.
Article 108 of the constitution clearly states that a majority leader will come from the party or coalition with the majority seats in parliament. As it stands right now in the 13th parliament, Kenya Kwanza holds the majority seats in parliament as clarified by registrar of political parties hence they have the right to claim the majority seat and Azimio should be satisfied with the minority seat.
