Nairobi - The Standard reports there is a stalemate in Parliament between Jubilee and Cord over formation of key parliamentary committees.

National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi turned down a passionate appeal from the minority in Parliament to have Jubilee cede ground in the push to chair the key committees in the House in favour of CORD.
