"Very Unfair, No Way Azimio Can Have Zero Votes" Junet Cries Foul on EALA Voting at Parliament

On Thursday, November 17, Suna East MP Junet Mohamed called a halt to voting for East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) seats in the National Assembly.

Some of the votes read, according to the MP, were incorrect and should have been considered spoilt votes.

"I'd like to interrupt the voting process. Azimio cannot possibly have zero votes "Junet was upset.

"Someone mentioned Kenya Kwanza - 5 Azimio 0. What does that mean, that no one voted for Azimio? That must be a tainted vote! "He made a pose.

He went on to say, "Shame on you, and may God punish you," to those who did not vote.

The minority whip in the National Assembly, on the other hand, was silenced by the acting speaker, Rachel Nyamai.

"Junet, you're out of place. The clerk is reading the paper as it is, which means that the MP did not indicate a vote on Azimio's behalf.

As a result, I'd like to request that we continue with the counting "Rachel Nyamai, the acting speaker, stated.

Notably, members of parliament cast ballots for their favored candidates in both the Senate and the National Assembly.

On November 17, the Senate chose Winnie Odinga, the last-born child of Raila Odinga, the head of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party.

Samuel Njoroge, the National Assembly Clerk, and Jeremiah Nyegenye, a senator, oversaw the procedure.

At the time of publication, the National Assembly's MPs had not yet voted or approved the names.
