With President William Ruto's camp keen on amending the constitution, concerns have been raised by leaders from both political sides with the majority seeming to be in line with the proposed plans.
However speaking in an interview with K24 TV on Thursday night, Prime cabinet secretary Musalia Mudavadi opined that office of the official opposition leader should only be created after proper consultation with Kenyans.
That is, the final decision should depend on the views of Kenyans and not top leaders in the government.
" If Kenyans will see it fit to alter the structure of official in a different format than it is formatted now, that should be out of proper dialogue and after good consultations", he said.
" If they as well see it fit to introduce the office of the prime minister, again that will be done" Musalia Mudavadi added.
His statement comes off when President William Ruto is calling legislators who are allied to UDA to rally behind the motion after being addressed to the speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetangula.
In a memorandum presented in National Assembly, Ruto is as well seeking to develop a formula that will guide the computation of the gender ratio in the house.
The head of state is as well considering incorporating National Constituency Development Fund ( NG-CDF) into the law so that it to be rendered legal.
Ruto's proposed plans were however opposed by opposition leader Raila Odinga who accused the Kenya Kwanza government of trying to rejuvenate the Building Bridges Initiative ( BBI) which Ruto opposed during Uhuru Kenyatta's regime.
