Trans Nzoia assembly to elect new leaders after parties joined Jubilee
The Trans Nzoia assembly, which is on recess, will call a special sitting to elect a new majority and minority leader after some parties dissolved to join the Jubilee Party. Majority leader Alfred Weswa and his minority counterpart Hillary Kemei were elected on New Ford Kenya and URP tickets respectively. The assembly will also elect new deputy majority and minority leaders, as well as party whips and their deputies. Ford Kenya nominated MCA Everlyne Nelima, who is the Legal Affairs Committee vice chairperson, said the minority leader should come from the party. She said speaker David Sifuna should call the sitting before the end of the recess. New Ford Kenya and URP have the majority of MCAs, followed by Ford Kenya, which has been eyeing the minority leader’s seat. Sifuna told the Star the political parties should write to him on whether they will elect the new leaders or they retain the existing ones.
