Looming Trouble In Azimio As Jubilee Party Threatens To Pull Out, More Details Revealed

Jubilee party MPs have threatened to abandon the Azimio la Umoja coalition if one of the parties is denied a seat on the Parliamentary Services Commission (PSC).

After the name of his Fatuma Dullo, a minority whip in the Senate, was removed from the list and he in the Nyamira Senate was replaced by Okong'o Omugeni, the lawmaker said that the panel reserved for the minority requested his one of his three positions.

The majority of its members, flanked by ten colleagues, were dissatisfied with their treatment within the coalition, even while parliamentary committees were being formed. According to Eldas MP Adan Keynan, a parliamentary group meeting will be held to determine the best course of action.

We are he the second largest party within the coalition after the ODM. It's our right. We therefore ask Azimio leadership to facilitate this process and convene a meeting to allow the Jubilee to nominate candidates for the PSC.

The Azimio Coalition is struggling to fill the current narrow vacancy, as Jubilee first suggested Cilissa MP John Wolk to the committee.

However, his name was not included in the final list submitted to Congress. “Waluke was the frontrunner for PSC. No one wants to admit they were wronged. Don't miss it," Keenan said.
