Talk of an­other con­sti­tu­tional re­view has resur­faced amid calls to re­visit the coun­try’s gov­er­nance struc­ture to re­duce in­ter­est in the pres­i­dency. Shift­ing to a par­lia­men­tary sys­tem, was among the op­tions that con­sul­tants pro­posed to civil so­ci­ety and a pos­si­ble ex­ten­sion of pres­i­den­tial term from five years to

seven years on con­di­tion that the pres­i­dent serve only one term. Civil so­ci­ety work­ing un­der Kura Yangu, Sauti Yangu (my vote my voice), is ex­pected to spear­head the talks on be­half of the civil so­ci­ety once the Supreme Court dis­penses with the pres­i­den­tial pe­ti­tions cur­rently be­fore the Supreme Court.
