Jubilee Leader Now Claims That The BBI Appeal Dismissal Gave Room For Postponement Of Elections

The dismissal of the BBI appeal case has been received differently. Some political leaders were happy while some were sad about it. Among those who gave their views is MP Jeremiah Kioni. He is among the Kenyans who were unhappy with the rulling.

However, Kioni has found a loophole in the rulling that might fit his interest. According to him, the rulling gave room for postponement of 2022 general elections. This is is an idea that he has been pushing for.

According to Kioni, the parliament is unconstitutional based on CJ Maraga judgment, we can't have elections unless we are certain that the next parliament will be constitutional.

Moreover, the parliament has not enacted legislation to implement the Two-Thirds Gender Rule for over nine years. That means the parliament cannot get into the next elections, without a formula on the table. The next Parliament will would also be unconstitutional.

To add the salt on the injury, the solution to the 2/3 Gender rule was part of the BBI document and it has been thrown out by the Court. He therefore posed a question, doesn't this mean we need another date for elections?

What do you think about Kioni's arguments? Feel free to share your views.
