It has emerged that the Members of the Constitutional Implementation and Oversight Committee are in a dilemma over their proposals for two deputy president positions in the country.

According to the People Daily newspaper, the MPs led by the Ndaragwa Constituency Member of Parliament Honourable Jeremiah Kioni are not sure which Deputy President if the law is changed will take over.

This is incase of any eventualities that may force the Head of State to leave power to either of the two that will be in charge during the president's tenure in office.

Jeremiah Kioni has already noted that they are through with a Bill that will effect changes to the office of the Deputy President as well as restructure the National Executive.

"We have finalised the Bill on the expansion of the Executive but first we must address some grey area around the creation of the two positions of deputy president."

He added: “We are doing final touches on the Bill that will allow the President to appoint ministers from Parliament and will be subjected to public participation.”
