Azimio la umoja sweeps majority of the parliamentary seats.

Raila Odinga’s Azimio la Umjoa has a majority in the National Assembly with 162 members compared to William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza which has 159 members. None of the coalitions commands an absolute majority of 180 members yet with 12 nominated seats still vacant and 4 elections having been postponed.

On single-party membership, Ruto’s UDA carries the day in the National Assembly with 137 members with Raila’s ODM coming second at 85. The two are followed by Jubilee with 28 MPs and Wiper with 24. UDA will therefore get a majority of the 12 nominated MP slots.

Wiliam Ruto's Kenya kwanza however controls the senate house.In the Senate, Kenya Kwanza has the Majority at 24 while Azimio comes in second at 22 Senators with one Senator unaffiliated to any of the two coalitions. This is a clear indication that the just concluded election was a measure of strength between the former prime Minister and the current deputy president.
