Trans Nzoia as­sem­bly to elect new lead­ers after par­ties joined Ju­bilee

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

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.
