Jubilee, Cord political showdown
06 May 2013, 11:00
Nairobi - The Standard reports the first major political showdown looms in Parliament after a weekend in which the two main coalitions stuck to their guns on the controversy over key House committees.
By late yesterday Jubilee and Cord officials had not reached a compromise on the composition of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) and Public Investment Committee (PIC), potentially threatening to disrupt the budget process.
Budget estimates tabled in Parliament on Thursday should have been referred to departmental committees, which however are yet to be established due to the standoff over PIC and PAC.
