The speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetangula is expected to make a ruling tomorrow on which party takes the majority leadership. This is after members of Parliament from both sides of the political divide were yesterday given an opportunity to make their submissions before him.
As the MPs await the ruling, a section members of Parliament allied to the Azimio camp led by Alego Usonga Member of Parliament Sam Onunga Atandi have expresed fear that the speaker may make a partisan ruling.
"The speaker is the party leader of Ford Kenya, a party within Kenya Kwanza. He is also a principal in the Kenya Kwanza camp. There is no way that he will make a ruling against his team," said Atandi.
According to the MP, Wetangula's move to reject the coalition agreement tabled by Junet Mohammed yesterday was a clear indication that he is going to make a partisan ruling. "He has no power to reject the coalition agreement. It is also not possible to dismiss something after less than five minutes of examination. Only the ORPP has such power," said Atandi.
