Leaders of the National Assembly and Senate are also expected’ to attend the conference, although demands for the dissolution of the two houses intensify the failure to pass the two-thirds gender rule.

 

Chairpersons and deputies of various committees, according to a Citizen TV report, will attend the meeting, which begins at 10:30 a.m.

Release of BBI report

The release of the Second Building Bridge Initiative (BBI) report will feature President Uhuru Kenyatta and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga on his release to pave the way for political reform and a possible referendum. "I expect the meeting to focus on how to better work together to advance the government's legislative agenda."

 

Senate Majority Whip Irungu Kang'ata, who is also a Murang'a senator, said the summit would review the gains made so far in implementing state policies.

 

"The government is pleased with the good work of the Senate in the last four months. We have processed a record 10 bills, including the County Attorney's Bill, the County Revenue Allocation Bill, and the County Government Amendment Bill. We have reached a historic agreement. "I hope we can discuss in the House ways to keep government business running smoothly," he said.

 

Parliament dissolution case

TUKO.co.ke had earlier said that Chief Justice David Maraga had asked Uhuru to dissolve parliament over its failure to enforce the two-thirds gender rule.

 

However, the two petitioners immediately approached the court under a certificate challenging the constitutional status of the counsel.

 

The court suspended the advisory and on Wednesday, October 14, the Chief Justice appointed a five-judge bench headed by Lady Justice Lydia Achode to give further directions on the petition and the hearing of the petition.
