10 February 2014, 12:31
Nairobi - Parliament will re-open Tuesday after the Christmas holiday recess with the stage set for battle between the Jubilee and CORD coalitions.
The two coalitions are locked up in meetings today to deliebarate the way forward for the re-opening of the house, with the Jubilee coalition meetiing at State House in Nairobi and CORD setting base in Naivasha.
President Uhuru Kenyatta will preside over the re-opening of the house.
Key to the house in the coming quarter will be deliberation of the budget. Key discussions will centre around supplementary budgets and budgetary policy statements.
Also on the agenda will be the division of revenue bill which will start in April.
The house will also almost certainly be dominated by the unending standard gauge railway saga, with MP's set to listen to reports from the parliamentary committee probing the matter.
President Uhuru Kenyatta had asked for the topic on the railway tender to stop but parliament has defied his orders and vowed to continue investigations on the matter.
