Nyachae slams proposal to fund all political parties

10 April 2014, 11:40 William Korir

Nairobi - The Constitution Implementation Commision CIC boss Charles Nyachae says that a Senate proposal to have all parties funded is ill judged.

The proposal has been fronted by Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale at the Senate, in a move that seeks to ensure all parties that have representation in any national and county assembly is eligible to tax payer funds.

Khalwale's proposal means that parties that sponsor even one succesful candidate in parliament, senate and at county assembly level is eligible for funding.

At the moment, that is not possible, with currently only the big parties getting any funding.

Khalwale's proposals are contained in the Political Parties Amendment bill

" It is good that for fairness of political parties and their operations, they not be alienated despite the fact that they represent the interests of Kenyans in some way, regardless of how small, Khalwale said while presenting it for its first reading.

The proposal has been agreed to by the registrar of political parties but Nyachae and his commission feel that it will cause problems in future.

" This proposal will only cause problems in future because of the loopholes it will present. There are many who will use it for their own interests at the taxpayers expense, he said.

" It will also be unfair to parties that field presidential aspirants because no one has been stopped from doing so.

" The constitution insists that parties have a national face and a national presence and this proposal will throw that out of the window, he added.

The senate committee on legal affairs that is headed by Busia senator Amos Wako to which the matter was presented before by the CIC will seek a resolution to the matter but they were not willing to say anything concrete at the moment.

" The presentation is valid and we will take a look and deliberate on it, Wako said.
