25 September 2014, 13:03 William Korir

The proposals have been launched Thursday morning at the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi.

Following the already started signature collection process that has been taking place all over the country, the team has now shifted to educating Kenyans on the proposals for amendment.

Team leader Paul Mwangi says that the next 30 days will seek to have Kenyans in the absolute know on needs to enact constitutional change.

" The public participation phase will take place for 30 days after which the amendment bill will be drawn up by the team, Mwangi announced.

CORD is seeking change in a number of areas of the constitution.

The key one is to seek an increase in the allocation to counties from 15 per cent to 45 per cent with 40 per cent going to the Counties and 5 per cent to be a Ward Equalisation Fund. Also, they want to change the basis of calculating the allocations to county governments from the most recent audited accounts of revenues received, as approved by the National Assembly to the previous year’s revenues received.

Other changes sought will be on education sector, security, electoral reforms as well as land reforms.
