MPs return to work after 2 month break

08 February 2016, 18:21 William Korir

Nairobi - MPs will turn their agenda to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC as they return to work from a two month recess.

The MPs return to Parliament Tuesday after a two month end year holiday recess and will be quick off the blocks as they seek to move quickly to pass key bills.

The first will most definitely be to help aid the IEBC which says it does not have the funds to effectively go on with voter registration which is due to begin next week.

Both sides of the house, the ruling Jubilee Coalition as well as the opposition CORD are all in agreement that the IEBC needs the funds.

They will quickly move to pass the Supplementary Budget which is expected to be submitted to the House by next week.

The Treasury uses the Bill to seek Parliament’s approval to draw more funds from the Consolidated Fund in order to get key government programmes and projects running.

MPs will be keen to approve allocations to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), which needs more money for voter registration.

The IEBC needs KES 2 billion to conduct the month long voter registration exercise set to run from next Monday where it expects to net a minimum of four million new voters.

" The IEBC needs funds for the voter registration and that will be our main agenda. There needs to be a plan for this and we need to give as much as possible to ensure that we have free and fair election," Majority Leader Aden Duale told News24.

The commission has already advertised for 2,878 voter registration assistants and will deploy an average of two BVR kits in each of the 1,450 wards. IEBC currently has 15,000 BVR kits which they used in the run up to the 2013 General Elections.
